Corals: Stony corals: Digitate


Digitate growth-forms have small, non-splitting branches which resemble fingers or digits. No secondary branches are visible. Often provide important nursery areas for juvenile reef fishes. The colonies extend their size through adding more branches, whereas the height of the colony generally does not change
