Characters: Colonies have both horizontal and upright irregularly folded fronds. Valleys are parallel to frond margins except towards the base of fronds where they become irregular. Collines are wavy. Columellae are wall-like and clearly fused with septo-costae.
Habitat: Semi-protected reefs.
Taxonomic Note: This species cannot always be reliably identified in collections, and is best separated from Pachyseris rugosa where these species co-occur.
