Short description
Formation: massive, cerioid, with circular corallites between 5 to 6 mm in diameter. Thick walls. Beaded septa. Poorly developed columellae. Thick fleshy tissue over the skeleton absent. Grooves and tubercle structure separating corallites may be present. In situ, can easily be mistaken for a faviid with small corallites. Color: pale gray (Ref. 848).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in shallow reef environments (Ref. 848). 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).
