Comparison Similar to and previously considered as a subgenus of Caryophyllia, but differs in having a compressed corallum with the convex edge bearing an alate to carinate keel, and having an open base. [details]

Diagnosis Corallum solitary, free (base always open or broken); convex corallum edge bears an alate to carinate keel; septal symmetry irregular; pali before penultimate cycle of septa; columella fascicular. [details]

Remark Two species, one known from the Pleistocene. Justification of elevation to genus level given by Cairns and Zibrowius (1997). [details]
