Husbandry

“From Veron, J.E.N. Corals of the World.”
Veron, 2000

Characters: Colonies are usually encrusting but may be hemispherical. Flattened, contorted branches usually occur near the centre of laminae and cover the surface of large colonies. Corallites are immersed. Papillae, grading into tuberculae, are most prominent on laminae; on branches they may be fused into short ridges. The coenosteum is coarse.

Colour: Grey or pale brown.

Habitat: Shallow reef environments.

Abundance: Uncommon.

Similar species: Montipora setosa
