Characters: Colonies form thickets of intertwining bottlebrush branches, often with only the distal 200 millimetres being alive. Branches divide irregularly and at frequent intervals to give a bushy colony shape. Axial and incipient axial corallites are tubular and tapered. Radial corallites are short and appressed.
Colour: Pale brown, often with yellow branchlet tips.
Habitat: Usually restricted to protected back reefs with clear water and soft substrates.
Abundance: Sometimes common.
