"From Corals of the World (JEN Veron)"

Lithophyllon lobata
Horst, 1921

Characters: Usually only one large central corallite is formed and this is distinctive. Peripheral corallites are usually much smaller. Sometimes there is a small cluster of central corallites. Septo-costae radiate from the central corallite, are thin, wavy and exsert and may have tentacular lobes.

Colour: Brown, may be mottled.

Habitat: Reef environments and rocky foreshores.

Abundance: Usually uncommon.

Similar species: Lithophyllon undulatum

Source reference: Veron (2000). Taxonomic references: Veron and Hodgson (1989), Veron (1992). Additional identification guide: Nishihira and Veron (1995).
