Description Colonies are usually hemispherical, with one to three centres per branch. Calices are deep with well defined walls. Septa are thick near the walls and thin within the calice. Septal teeth are tall and blunt, decreasing in size towards the columella. Colour: colonies are dull greenish-brown with pale centres. Abundance: sometimes common on upper reef slopes but much less so than L. hemprichii. Colonies seldom exceed 0.5 m in diameter. (Veron, 1986 <57>)
May form large, domed colonies several metres across; individual lobes mostly rounded 5-10 cm in diameter, 15-30 cm long and attached only at their bases. They are easily broken and frequently damaged by careless anchoring by boats. Colour: usually a dull bluish-grey or bluish-green oral discs. Habitat: diverse reef areas. (Richmond, 1997) [details]
