Short description
Colony: small, massive, rounded. Corallites: deeply excavated, with angular walls. Septa: straight, widely spaced, often in two alternating orders; very prominent teeth, with ragged margins. Weakly developed paliform lobes. Small and compact columellae. Color: off-white walls, dark centers (Ref. 848).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in a wide range of reef environments (Ref. 848). Typical on reef tops and outer reef flats. Also occurs in lagoons, on the back and foreslope of reefs (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).
