Climate / Range
Tropical; 29°N - 27°S, 34°E - 172°W (Ref. 847)
In situ, this species resembles an upside-down salad bowl, up to 60 cm in diameter and 1 to 1.5 cm thick. The septa generally run uninterrupted the entire distance from the primary corallite to the margin. Primary septa are much more exsert than secondaries, and both are strongly dentate. Corallites are irregularly distributed, but may form lines parallel to the margin. Each corallites is marked by a small mound of highly exsert septa, therefore the colony surface is rough. The underside is comparatively smooth with regulary exsert costae and low spines (Ref. 269). Zooxanthellae; free-living (Ref. 19).
