“From Veron, J.E.N. Corals of the World.”

"Description: Colonies are flat and encrusting. Corallites are circular, uniformly spaced and separated by blistery coenosteum. Walls are thin. Septa are well developed, thin and straight. The inner margins of septa form a columella tangle. The colony surface is covered by a mass of slightly extended tentacles.
Color: Pale brown.
Habitat: Shallow reef environments.
Abundance: Previously known from a single beach eroded specimen.
Similar Species: Galaxea species. See also Oculina and the astrocoeniid Madracis."

Thank you very much, Charlie Veron!
