Colonies are massive, often spherical or may form thick submassive plates. Corallites are plocoid or ploco-meandroid and are evenly spaced. It is a distinctive orange-brown with white septo-costae, sometimes green.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Maximum depth from Ref. 83917. Zooxanthellate (Ref. 116012). Members of the class Anthozoa are either gonochoric or hermaphroditic. 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).
