Description Colonies are massive to encrusting. Calices are 7-10 mm in diameter and are angular. Septa generally alternate, paliform lobes are well developed in coralla from turbid water to absent in coralla from very exposed habitats. Colour: usually pale brown; corallite centres are often cream. Abundance: common in intertidal habitats where different colonies may adjoin to form flat expanses frequently over 5 m in diameter. Also occurs in very protected turbid environments. (Veron, 1986 <57>) [details]
