Description Colonies form compact bushes with anastomosing branches. Corallites are arranged in neat rows along the branches; they are mostly immersed and have poorly developed internal structures except for a solid style-like columella; usually one, sometimes two cycles of septa, and fused to the columella. Coenosteum covered by fine spicules. Polyps extended only at night (Veron, 1986). [details]
