Short description Morphology

Colony: encrusting, thick plates, or columnar. Surface: smooth, columns may be large and reach 1 m in height. Corallites: alternating long and short fine septal spines. Polyp: truncated tips, giving a squared appearance. Tentacle: six large tentacles may alternate with six small tentacles. Color: uniformly pale or dark brown (Ref. 848).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs on protected upper reef slopes (Ref. 848). Hermaphroditic (Ref. 113708). 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).
