CRED-Encrusting hard coral


Coral colonies with encrusting morphology are those with flattened, thick or thin sheets/plates that adhere to, and follow the contour of the substrate. Colony surfaces often range from smooth to rough, bumpy, knobby, or crinkled, with some specimens exhibiting raised colony edges, giving colonies a platy/foliose appearance.
