Description This large family is usually divided into six sub-families, only one of which is hermatypic. The latter have phaceloid, meandroid or flabello-meandroid colonies with large, unperforated and widely spaced septa with little or no ornamentation. Corallite walls are of similar structure. The ahermatypic subfamilies are solitary or form phaceloid or dendroid colonies, usually with large-lobed septa and paliform lobes. All Cryophylliidae have a membraneous epitheca.
Related family is Flabellidae. (Veron, 1986 <57>). [details]
