Short description Morphology

Colony: massive, usually small. Corallites: crowded, circular. Septa: thickened, exsert or ragged, with large teeth near the wall. Well developed paliform lobes forming a crown around the columella. Color: often brown or gray or mottled, with walls and calices of contrasting color (Ref. 848).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Depth based from occurrence (Ref. 8294); to be replaced with a better reference. Known from upper reef slopes (Ref. 848). 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).
