Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription This species is distinguished from the other members of the genus by the fact that it has only 10 primary septa. In Arabian seas a common variant has only 8 primary septa, but these calices occur on the same corals as calices with 10 septa and thus are unlikely to be a different species. Calices range from being very plocoid to almost flush with the coenosteum. Most corallites have 10 primary septa. Colour: brown, cream or green. Abundance: common, but less so than C. serailia.
