Characters: Skeletons are very similar to those of Euphyllia glabrescens. Polyps have branching tentacles almost identical to those of E. divisa. Colour: Pale greenish-grey with lighter tentacle tips. Similar species: Euphyllia glabrescens, E. paraglabrescens and E. paraancora can only be distinguished by the characters of polyp tentacles. Euphyllia yaeyamaensis is similar, but has both skeletal and tentacle distinctions. Habitat: Shallow reef environments protected from wave action. Abundance: Uncommon.
