Description This is a fully meandroid species with valleys wider than the separating walls. The walls are sharply angular, and are usually perforated. Septa are exsert and pointed above the walls. They are in two orders, but are irregular rather than regularly alternating. The columella is a ragged, loose floor of spicules. Platygyra daedalea is a fairly common species in mid-depths on fore-reef slopes. It is the commonest species of this genus over all depths except on reef flats. (Sheppard, 1998 <308>)
Colonies are massive to encrusting, meandroid or submeandroid, with thick walls. Septa are exsert and have a characteristically ragged appearance. Colour: usually brightly coloured, most commonly with brown walls and grey or green valleys. Abundance: common over a wide range of habitats, especially back reef margins. (Veron, 1986 <57>)
Colonies are a striking sight, ranging from encrustations to domes or micro-atolls. The meandering, convoluted calices have high walls surrounding elongated valleys. The Pattern is reminiscent of the folds of a brain, giving this coral its common name. Colour: the walls are always a dark brownish-green and the valleys a bright green or, less commonly, grey. Habitat: diverse reef areas. (Richmond, 1997) [details]

Description This is a fully meandroid species with valleys wider than the separating walls. The walls are sharply angular, and are usually perforated. Septa are exsert and pointed above the walls. They are in two orders, but are irregular rather than regularly alternating. The columella is a ragged, loose floor of spicules. Platygyra daedalea is a fairly common species in mid-depths on fore-reef slopes. It is the commonest species of this genus over all depths except on reef flats. (Sheppard, 1998 <308>)
Colonies are massive to encrusting, meandroid or submeandroid, with thick walls. Septa are exsert and have a characteristically ragged appearance. Colour: usually brightly coloured, most commonly with brown walls and grey or green valleys. Abundance: common over a wide range of habitats, especially back reef margins. (Veron, 1986 <57>)
Colonies are a striking sight, ranging from encrustations to domes or micro-atolls. The meandering, convoluted calices have high walls surrounding elongated valleys. The Pattern is reminiscent of the folds of a brain, giving this coral its common name. Colour: the walls are always a dark brownish-green and the valleys a bright green or, less commonly, grey. Habitat: diverse reef areas. (Richmond, 1997) [details]
