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

Echinopora fruticulosa
(Ehrenberg, 1834)

Characters: Colonies are dome-shaped clumps of interlocking branches up to 2 metres across. Branches are formed of single tubular corallites (or axial corallites) with lateral buds. Corallites are 5-8 millimetres diameter. Costal spines are widely spaced and not exsert. There is little tendency to form laminae or solid bases.

Colour: Pinkish-brown with pale corallite ends.

Habitat: Most shallow reef environments.

Abundance: Common.

Similar species: Echinopora gemmacea , Echinopora horrida

Source reference: Veron (2000). Taxonomic reference: Sheppard and Sheppard (1991).
