Acropora hyacinthus is a coral that forms large, low, roughly circular tables or semi-circular brackets. It has a fairly variable form, mostly due to its very wide.

It has a fairly variable form, mostly due to its very wide range of habitats. In turbulent water it forms solid, heavy sheets with stunted vertical branchlets it is found in very rough waterand in sheltered conditions its branchlets become longer, slender and more separate.

All intermediate conditions are common. Its branches anastomose strongly such that central portions may be thick, unbroken sheets, especially in exposed locations, where the tables may touch the substrate and form several secondary points of attachment. In all cases, branchlets turn upwards vertically from the upper surface of the tables.

They may show elongated axial corallites, or else the branchlet tips may terminate in “rosettes” of calices with no protuberant axial corallite.


Both conditions usually occur in the same colonies. This species usually shows emerged, long and waving tentacles during the daytime. This species is commonest in less hyacinrhus 3 or 4 m depth, where it is a very consistent component of the surf zone on exposed reef crests. However, it has a very wide distribution, and may be found in clear water and lagoonal areas to 35 m deep Sheppard, Colonies are wide, flat tables which are thin and finely structured.

Fine upward projecting branchlets have a rosette-like arrangement of radial corallites. Axial corallites are not exsert.

A tabular species with fine branches which project upwards. The radial corallites hyacibthus the tips a rosette-like appearance. Colonies are often tiered. United States Exploring Expedition during the years Lea and Blanchard, Philadelphia. Connect with us ‘.
