Corallites are immersed or exsert and are surrounded by thecal papillae. These are frequently fused into short ridges near margins and may form hoods over the corallites. Coenosteum papillae are thick and fused.

Colour: Usually a uniform brown, cream or purple, with pale margins. Sometimes brightly coloured.

Habitat: Shallow reef environments.

Abundance: Common; may be a dominant species on sheltered upper reef slopes.

Taxonomic note: This species is divisible into several smaller semi-distinct taxonomic units. Source reference: Veron (2000). Taxonomic reference: Veron and Wallace (1984). Additional identification guides: Veron (1986), Sheppard and Sheppard (1991), Nishihira and Veron (1995), Coles (1996).
