Description Colonies are encrusting or have short irregular lobes with rounded surfaces. Corallites are 3.5-4.5 mm in diameter with walls of interconnected rods and spines and long spine-like septa. A columella is usually present, and is sometimes well developed. Polyps are tightly compacted and long with knobs on tentacle tips. Colour: usually yellow, green or brown with white bases to the tentacles. Abundance: usually uncommon. (Veron, 1986 <57>)

Similar to Goniopora with day-time feeding polyps (2-3 mm across and with twelve tentacles). Forms encrusting colonies or small lobes. Polyps are pale brown, green or yellow and often have white dashes at the base of each tentacle. The skeleton is highly porous and therefore very light. Habitat: shallow, sheltered reefs.

Description Colonies are encrusting or have short irregular lobes with rounded surfaces. Corallites are 3.5-4.5 mm in diameter with walls of interconnected rods and spines and long spine-like septa.
