There are large colonies on the vertical sides of reefs and on their overhung parts. In Ishikawa Prefecture, the coral is widely distributed on the east coast. On the west coast, the colonies are rather small. On the Environment Ministry’s Red List, it is classified as a Threatened Local Population (LP).
