Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorBiology zooxanthellate [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Adult animals are free-living and monostomatous. Their
outline varies from circular to oval; the coralla vary from flat to slightly arched. The corallum wall is solid and granulated. The septal margins are ornamented with lobate dentations. The sides of the dentations are covered by granulations which are radially arranged. The costal spines are laterally flattened with either a single row of granulations or several rows, each being oriented
perpendicularly to the costal margin. The polyp is fleshy with thick, relatively long tentacles which give the animal an actiniarian-like appearance. The tentacles have knobbed tips (acrospheres). [details]
