Info

Acropora nobilis
Dana, 1846


Similar Species: Radial corallites are similar to those of Acropora robusta and A. abrotanoides, but these species have different growth-forms except in very shallow water. Acropora formosa, A. abrolhosensis and A. grandis may have similar growth-forms but corallite sizes and shapes are clearly distinct.
