Description Colonies are massive, columnar, encrusting or laminar. Corallites are in short valleys or are irregualrly scattered and shallow. Corallite walls are indistinct. Columellae consist of groups of pinnules. Septo-costae are fused in distinctive patterns and have finely serrated to heavily granulated margins. Polyps are usually extended at night and sometimes during the day. Retracted polyps have rough appearance. (Veron, 1986 <57>) [details]

    Definitions

From editor or global species database
Diagnosis Corallum colonial, attached, encrusting, massive or submassive. Corallites cerioid, forming monocentric to polycentric series, wall synapticulothecal, perforate. Septa perforate, joined by synapticulae, fusing towards the fossa. Septal margin ornamentation composed of paddle-shaped granules perpendicular to the septal plane. Septa sides granular. Columella developed, formed by multiple processes. Costae on the colony wall unequal to sub-equal. [details]

From other sources
Description Colonies are massive, columnar, encrusting or laminar. Corallites are in short valleys or are irregualrly scattered and shallow. Corallite walls are indistinct. Columellae consist of groups of pinnules. Septo-costae are fused in distinctive patterns and have finely serrated to heavily granulated margins. Polyps are usually extended at night and sometimes during the day. Retracted polyps have rough appearance. (Veron, 1986 <57>) [details]
