Description Colonies are small and bushy, usually >40 cm across, very rarely with a tendency to develop small plates or brackets. Branches are straight, up to 1 cm thick, and branch frequently. The species is distinctive because the branches have wide radial corallites with thick, flared lips. This is very conspicuous underwater, more so than with the cleaned skeleton. The septa in the radial corallites are also large and clearly visible underwater. Towards the base of the branches, the corallites become more immersed, but retain their open, gaping appearance. Living colonies are pale cream. The species prefers sheltered areas which are well illuminated, between 5 and 25 m deep (Sheppard, 1998). [details]
