Characters: Colonies are thick or encrusting plates, sometimes with short rootlets. Corallites are irregular, immersed on concave surfaces, exsert on convex surfaces. They are mostly inclined and often have elliptical openings. Papillae around the corallites have a feathery appearance and may form a hood over the openings.
Colour: Cream or pale-brown.
Habitat: Shallow reef environments.
Similar species: Astreopora scabra
