Pinnules arranged primarily, but not exclusively, in three axial rows, as well as in subverticillate groupings containing one pinnule from each row. Secondary and higher order subpinnules arranged in similar pattern. Multiple orders of subpinnules arising on the lateral primary pinnules, but not uniformly developed from branch to branch. Branches, pinnules and subpinnules adhering and fusing. Spines simple, conical, smooth, with acute to rounded apex; usually 0.06-0.08 mm tall. Spines 0.16-0.30 mm apart in each row, with five to six spines per millimeter. Polyps not more than 1.2 mm in transverse diameter; with seven to eight polyps per centimeter. [details]
