Characters: Colonies are submassive and meandroid, often forming thick plates. Valleys radiate from the original point of growth and divide at regular intervals maintaining a constant width. Septo-costae of adjacent valleys are seldom joined at the top of valley walls and are evenly spaced. Orders alternate at the colony periphery and sometimes elsewhere.
Colour: Grey or pale brown.
Similar Species: Ctenella chagius. Although Meandrina brasiliensis is readily distinguished from M. meandrites by its growth-form and small size but there are no significant differences of skeletal detail.
Habitat: Most reef environments.
Abundance: Usually uncommon but conspicuous.
