Holotype HLD X2: 154-20, geounit Indian Exclusive Economic Zone [details]
From editor or global species database
Diagnosis Extratentacular budding forms colonies of three types: arborescent, bushy and dendroid; epitheca absent; costae well defined; septa in Pourtalès plan;; pali present or not; columella spongy or papillose; azooxanthellate. [details]

Remark This genus and family were monographed by Cairns (2001), which included a phylogenetic analysis based on morphology. 74 species, 33 known from fossil record. Cairns (2001) divided the genus into three species groups, based on colony morphology. [details]

From other sources
