Short description
Colony: massive. Corallites: circular, closely compacted in shallow water, more widely spaced in deeper water. Septa: fine, numerous, regular. Paliform lobes often poorly developed. Color: pale gray, green or brown, often with calices of contrasting color (Ref. 848).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Depth based from occurrence (Ref. 8294); to be replaced with a better reference. Found in all reef environments (Ref. 848), subtidal on rocks, rocky reefs, outer reef channel, back and foreslopes and in lagoons (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).
