Short description Morphology

Colonies are composed of thin unifacial laminae sometimes forming tiers or whorls. Corallites are arranged in rows between coenosteum ridges, which are conspicuous and usually perpendicular to colony margins. Cream, pink or brown with pale margins (Ref. 846).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Maximum depth from Ref. 98471. Inhabits mostly protected upper reef slopes (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).
