Short description Morphology

Colony: massive, hemispherical, flat, or columnar; commonly over 1 m across. Corallites: 4 to 6 sided. Long and short septa alternate clearly; thin and straight with well developed thin paliform lobes. Color: uniform cream or pale brown, sometimes brown, pink, or green (Ref. 848).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Sometimes a dominant species of intertidal habitats (Ref. 848). Hermaphroditic (Refs. 113708, 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).
