“From Veron, J.E.N. Corals of the World.”
Umbgrove, 1940

Description: Colonies are large basal laminae, often with contorted branches. Corallites are irregularly distributed on both laminae and branches.
Color: Brown.
Habitat: Shallow protected reef environments.
Abundance: Usually uncommon.
Similar Species: Corallites are similar to those of Porites flavus, which is primarily distinguished by lack of basal laminae. Growth-forms are similar to those of P. sillimaniana and P. latistella. Calice characters are closest to P. horizontalata.
