Colonies have wide range of forms from compact bushes to tables. Axial corallites are small while radial corallites are usually a mixture of sizes and are strongly appressed and swollen, with small openings.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

A wide range of reef environments, i.e., intertidal outer reef flat and subtidal reef edge, submerged reef tops (Ref. 86439) and rocky foreshores (Ref. 846). Hermaphroditic (Ref. 113712). Mature gametes are shed into the coelenteron and spawned through the mouth. Life cycle: The zygote develops into a planktonic planula larva. Metamorphosis begins with early morphogenesis of tentacles, septa and pharynx before larval settlement on the aboral end (Ref. 833).
