“From Veron, J.E.N. Corals of the World.”
Scheer and Pillai, 1983

Description: Colonies are small (less than 0.1 metre across) and encrusting. The surface has small (approximately 8 mm diameter) mounds which do not develop into branches. Corallites have well developed hoods facing different directions. They have style-like columellae and septa in two unequal cycles.
Color: Usually cream or pinkish.
Habitat: Found only on vertical surfaces of mid- to lower reef slopes.
Abundance: Uncommon but distinctive.
Similar Species: None; this is the only encrusting Stylophora.
