From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Polyps are always extended except when severely disturbed, with tentacles which are cylindrical, not branching, and with enlarged pale terminal knobs. Coralla are phaceloid, mono- to tricentric. Calices contain large septa, which have smooth edges. Colonies may reach up to nearly a metre in diameter. Calices are smaller than those of E. paraancora. (Sheppard, 1998 <308>)

Colonies are phaceloid, and corallites are usually separated by 0.5-1 corallite diameters. Septa are not strongly exsert. Polyps have tubular tentacles. Colour: grey-blue to grey -green with cream, green or white tips to the tentacles. Abundance: uncommon but conspicuous. Occupies a wide range of habitats. (Veron, 1986 <57>) [details]
