Characters: Colonies are attached, laminar, unifacial and may form tiers. Plates usually have lobed margins and commonly have radiating costal ridges. Corallites are small and not inclined towards the plate margins. Septo-costae are similar to those of Halomitra. Colour: Pale brown with white margins. Similar species: Podabacia motuporensis is very similar, but has smaller corallites and finer costae. See also P. crustacea, which forms larger colonies and has larger corallites. Habitat: Most reef environments. Abundance: Uncommon
