Characters: Colonies are encrusting to submassive. Corallites are deep, monocentric or with 2-3 centres together. Centres are separated by collines of irregular height and which run in irregular directions. Long and short septo-costae clearly alternate.
Colour: Uniform tan or mottled yellow-brown, sometimes with green mouths.
Similar Species: Agaricia agaricites, which develops fronds rather than retains a submassive growth-form.
Habitat: Most reef environments except shallow lagoons.
