Artist's Description

Rather than forming colonies like most other corals ~ disc corals or fungia species ~ are usually solitary and generally not attached to the substrate. In the wild ~ they tend to live in aggregations ~ and members of the same family will not sting each other.

They are flat or dome-shaped ~ and circular or sometimes elongate. The more ‘domed’ the individual specimen ~ the better the coral will be at purging itself of sediment.

Species have wide slit-like mouths in the centre and short tapered ‘widely spaced’ tentacles that are usually extended at night. Their resemblance to mushrooms ~ gives these corals their common name “Mushroom Coral” or just like “fungus” mushrooms – “Fungia species” in scientific terms.
