Description It is the biggest family in terms of number of genera, and ranks next to the Acroporidae in number of species. All extant species are hermatypic and colonial. Septa, paliform lobes, columellae and wall structures, when present, all appear to be structurally similar. Septal structures are simple, columellae are a simple tangle of elongate septal teeth, walls are composed of thickened septa and cross-linkages. Related families are Merulinidae and Trachyphylliidae. (Veron, 1986 <57>). [details]

Remark The second option appears to be more likely, because if Milne Edwards (1857) had intended for the Agele-groups to represent family-level taxa, then in the case of Oculinidae he would have created a subfamily between the family Oculinidae and the Agele-groups Oculinacees and Stylastreacees. But instead, Milne Edwards strictly applied this model in at least four places in the volumes concerned, strongly indicating that the Agele-groups are not family-level taxa. [details]

Status Milne Edwards (1857, p. 426) created the tribe Faviacees, also providing the Latinized version of it (=Faviaceae). Soon after, Faviaceae was used by d'Achiardi (1866, p. 5) and other authors. [details]
