Description Colonies are massive, either rounded or hillocky. Walls are thick, calices are 7-12 mm in diameter, septa are straight, with prominent teeth. Colour: dark in turbid environments, other wise pale brown with green oral discs. Abundance: common and occupies a wide range of habitats with colonies frequently exceeding 1 m in diameter. (Veron, 1986).
Grows into large, rounded domes >l m in diameter. Corallites 7-14 mm across, cerioid, i.e. they share common walls, unlike Favia-though differentiating between these two genera in the field can be difficult. Colour: variable, ranging from greyish-green to reddish-brown, and has green oral discs. The fine septo-costal structure is evident when the polyps are contracted. Habitat: sheltered reefs (Richmond, 1997).
Also distributed in Australia in Kalk (1958).
Tropical Indo-Pacific in Kalk (1958). [details]
