Info

Description: Colonies are submassive to encrusting. Corallites are deep with very thin angular walls giving colonies a honeycomb appearance. Corallites are usually less than 7 millimetres diameter. Septa are few and widely spaced, paliform lobes are absent.
Color: Dark colours, often with white upper margins to walls.

Similar Species: Favites pentagona, which has thicker walls, slightly larger corallites and well developed paliform lobes. See also F. spinosa, which has very exsert septa and Goniastrea columella, which has paliform lobes.
