Description Colonies are composed of unifacial laminae, sometimes forming tiers, but mostly they are horizontal. Corallites are widely spaced, thick-walled, and immersed to conical in shape, which calices 1.5-2 mm in diameter. Colour: usually yellow-green with distinct margins. Abundance: sometimes common and may form large stands on fringing reefs where the water is turbid (Veron, 1986). [details]
