Description Colonies are submassive to encrusting, sometimes forming irregular columns. Corallites are thin-walled and angular, with calices usually less than 6 mm in diameter. Septa are few in number, paliform lobes are well developed. Colour: often brightly coloured, brown or red with green oral discs being common. Abundance: sometimes common, with colonies exceeding 1 m in diameter. (Veron, 1986 <57>) [details]
