Husbandry

“From Veron, J.E.N. Corals of the World.”
Dana, 1846

Characters: Colonies are thick plates with or without contorted nodular columns or branches. Corallites are immersed or exsert, cup-shaped, tubular, or ‘nariform’ (where openings on the sides of tuberculae give them the shape of a roman nose, as with corallites of nariform Acropora). Tuberculae may also be fused into smooth ridges.

Colour: Mottled or uniform purple or brown, usually with white polyps.

Habitat: Mostly upper reef slopes.

Abundance: Uncommon.

Similar species: Montipora spongiosa
