Eastern Central Pacific: Hawaii.
Colonies: Encrusting to submassive; up to 30 cm across; with irregular branch-like upgrowths up to 10 cm thick; well defined. Pale to dark brown.
Subtidal environments (Ref. 846). Members of the class Anthozoa are either gonochoric or hermaphroditic. Mature gametes are shed into the coelenteron and spawned through the mouth.
