    The species has stubby projections resembling fingers that are round to cone-shaped which project out from a short stalk. The projections branch-out in various directions and have polyps extending out from their tips. They are hardy and fast growing. Most specimens are pale in color, with contrasting greenish-brown to brown polyps. Corals of this genus are slimy to touch since they produce a lot of mucous. They can grow up to 41 cm in height.
