Info

Montipora palawanensis
Veron, 2000

Infos from AIMS:

Characters: Colonies are submassive or laminar. The surface is uniformly covered with very large verrucae which are fused so as to form continuous ridges which form an irregular pattern. Only at plate margins are verrucae aligned in rows. Corallites are immersed deep between the ridges.

Similar Species: Montipora verrucosa and M. danae, both of which have smaller verrucae which are not fused into ridges. Montipora meandrina has more irregular verrucae. See also M. mactanensis. and M. verruculosus.
