Description Colonies are flabelloid, phaceloid or meandro-phaceloid, the latter usually dome-shaped. Walls are thin and imperforate. Columellae are mostly absent. Septa are prominent, smooth-edged and imperforate. Polyps are extended day and night, are large and fleshy and have tentacles which very in shape for each species. Two species, E. divisa and E. ancora, can be distinguished only by their tentacles (Veron, 1986 <57>). [details]
