Description Colonies are thin, often overlapping laminae, with lobed margins. Corallites are irregularly distributed, with deep-seated columellae and thick granulated septo-costae. Colour: brown or red-brown, with white perimeters. Abundance: uncommon except when encrusting vertical or overhang faces. (Veron, 1986 <57>) [details]
