Solitary, cylindrical, ?free. Septa compact, strong, small in number. Thin apophyses extend from axial ends of septa and from dissepiments closest to the calicular centre. Endothecal dissepiments vesicular in the marginal region, tabular in the axial area. No columella. Wall septothecal.


Prever (1909, p. 136) created the genus Aulastraeopora for both solitary and colonial forms with identical development of the calicular apparatus. Later, L. Beauvais (1976a, p. 25) separated the colonial representatives, for which she established the genus Preverastraea.
