Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Colonies are usually flat and subplocoid. Corallites are crowded, irregular in shape and may have up to three centres. Septa are exsert, thin and very irregular; they plunge steeply inside the wall. Paliform lobes are poorly developed or absent. Colour: a wide range, usually with different-coloured corallite walls and oral discs. Abundance: common on upper reef slopes (Veron, 1986). [details]
