Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Colonies are flat with angular subcerioid corallites of very variable size. Septa are tightly compact. Columellae are small and compact. Colour: usually pale yellow or cream on the upper surface with dark sides, grey with pale oral discs. Abundance: Common and occurs in a wide range of habitats. (Veron, 1986 <57>)
Colonies form encrustations in which the polygonal or rounded corallites (2-10 mm across) are flush with the surface, tightly packed and have prominent, radiating septa. Like Favites, common walls are shared between adjacent corallites. Colour: Polyps usually dark grey with pale oral discs, giving them an irregular but star-like quality. Habitat: diverse, including seagrass beds, reef flats and turbid waters. (Richmond, 1997) [details]
