Biology zooxanthellate or azooxanthellate [details]

Diagnosis Corallum solitary or colonial, free or attached, most azooxanthellate, sometimes reproducing by transverse division; septa laminar, composed of one fan system of numerous, irregularly spaced, simple trabeculae resulting in a smooth axial margin, at least in lower-cycle (S1-2) septa, but a porous septum; wall synapticulothecate, both wall and septa being somewhat porous; endotheca and dissepiments may be present; septa usually hexameral, often arranged in a Pourtales plan; pali and columella present or absent. [details]
