Description Colonies are usually flat. Valleys radiate from a central area and have steep sides and flat floors. Valleys are separated by a well-defined groove. Septa are thick, with large teeth. Colour: usually grey or mottled with valley floors and walls of different colours. Abundance: rare. (Veron, 1986 <57>)
Similar to Lobophyllia in general appearance, but with meandering lobes which radiate from the centre and form a flat colony. Colour: coloration varies from bluish-grey to reddish-brown. Habitat: diverse reef areas. (Richmond, 1997) [details]
