Description Thick encrusting sheets or low massive forms, sometimes with leafy edges to the colony. This species has regular shaped, rounded tuberculae up to 0.6 cm across. This coral is similar to M. danae, but the tuberculae are smaller, more regular and rounded. Calices lie between the tuberculae as in M. danae, but are deeper. It is common on reef slopes from 5 to 25 m deep (Sheppard, 1998).
Colonies are submassive or plate-like with the surface uniformly covered with tuberculae, like those of M.dDanae. Corallites are immersed between tuberculae. Colour: blue or brown, uniform or mottled. Bright-blue or green polyps are extended during the day. Abundance: common on upper reef slopes or lagoons (Veron, 1986).
