From editor or global species database
Diagnosis Corallum colonial and attached, free living colonies (coralliths) are common in some species; corallum shape encrusting, foliose, massive, columnar, branching; budding intratentacular and extratentacular; synapticulotheca; costae absent; entosepta and exosepta alternate and fuse forming fan-like groups of septa; enclosed entosepta are formed by the fusion and division of endo and exosepta; septa perforated; septal margins and faces ornamented; entosepta and enclosed entosepta mostly petaloid and with exsert distal ends; pali absent; endothecal dissepiments sparse; columella present; series of calices surrounded by rows of enclosed entosepta and, ultimately, by the same perforated wall can form; collines I present or absent; coenosteum absent; an entoseptum bears a tentacle, an exoseptum does not; an enclosed entoseptum bears an extrapolypal tentacle. [details]
