Description Colonies are flat to hemispherical, phaceloid to flabello-meandroid, the latter with valleys dividing irregualrly as growing space permits. Septa taper in thickness from the wall to the columella and have tall sharp teeth. Retracted polyps are thick and fleshy, with either smooth or rough surfaces. Colour: colonies may be uniform in colour or have two or more colours concentrically around the mouths or valleys. All corallites of the same colony have the same colours. Abundance: very common and frequently a dominant on upper reef slopes where different colonies may form monospecific stands. (Veron, 1986 <57>) [details]
