City-dweller Hard-rayed Flower-animal Stinging-nettle Animals
Poritidae is a family of stony corals. Members of the family are colonial hermatypic (reef-building) corals. They are variable in size and form but most are massive, laminar or ramose as well as branching and encrusting. The corallites are compact with very little coenosteum covering the skeleton. The walls of the corallites and the septa are porous. J. E. N. Veron considers the family is not a natural grouping but is a miscellaneous collection of genera that do not fit well elsewhere.
