Size / Weight / Age
Reef-associated; depth range 0 - 50 m (Ref. 848)
Climate / Range
Tropical; 27°N - 30°S, 42°E - 137°W (Ref. 848)
In subtropical localities: often flat, solitary, and less than 60 mm across. In the tropics: larger, sometimes colonial. The slope of the septa up from the columella to an indistinct wall and the slope down of the costae to the periphery gives the fleshy mantle of the polyps a distinct concentric texture. Secondary centers present near the colony center and around the periphery. Sturdy septo-costae have large blunt teeth. Color: usually dark green or tan (Ref. 848).
