Description Corals are irregular in outline, up to 70 mm in diameter, generally composed of several wedge-shaped sectors which break apart readily. Thick beaded septa are approximately equal in height. Colour: greyish-yellow or beige, often with green margins or centres. Abundance: found on a wide range of lower reef slopes or flat substrates. Rarely found but plentiful where it occurs. (Veron, 1986 <57>) [details]
