Skeleton are similar to those of Euphyllia glabrescens with corallites 20-40 millimeters in diameter. Polyps have tentacles with anchor-shaped ends similar to those of E. ancora. Tentacle tips form concentric circles that may be pale tan or greenish-brown in color.
In shallow to deep reef habitats (Ref. 98471). 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).
