Husbandry

From AIMS:
Characters: Colonies are encrusting. Corallites are widely spaced and form excavations in the coenosteum. Septa are in two equal or subequal cycles. Each corallite has a prominent coenosteum style.

Similar Species: Stylocoeniella guentheri, which has smaller corallites with less prominent coenosteum styles. See also Madracis kirbyi and the poritid Poritipora paliformis.
