Info

“From Veron, J.E.N. Corals of the World.”
Veron, 2000

Characters: Colonies have encrusting bases and irregular branches which seldom fuse. Branching may be open or compact. Coenosteum ridges are very prominent and form a sinuous pattern over branch surfaces. Corallites are deeply embedded between the ridges. The skeletal structure of the corallites is Porites-like, with very elongate septa which occasionally fuse.

Colour: Grey or green with pale coenosteum ridges.

Habitat: Shallow protected embayments.

Abundance: Rare.

Similar species: Montipora malampaya , Montipora setosa , Porites negrosensis
