Tentacle up to 10 cm in length and are usually brown with bulb at or below the end. Tip of the tentacle is usually red with the equator of the bulb white. Bulb is said to be related to presence of fish and may be absent in which case tentacles have a white ring where the equator of the bulb would have formed. Shallow water specimens have small polyps with oral disc diameter about 5cm and are clustered together in crevices or adjacent to coral branches so that they appear confluent and forms an extensive field. In deep water they may reach up to 40cm diameter (oral disc) and are solitary.
