Description Colonies are massive, usually flat or dome-shaped. Corallites are subcerioid to plocoid. Costae are poorly developed or absent. Columellae consist of vertical pinnules. Septa have inward-projecting teeth. Polyps are usually extended only at night (except L. pruinosa) (Veron, 1986 <57>). [details]
