In e.g. forming a massive to ramose colony with corallites that are in plocoid-ceriod integration, having porous synapticular corallite walls and tabulate disepiments, no columella but trabecular extentions that form a a segment-like pseudocolumella (in contrast to Gregory's statement, where it was erranously called a 'real styliform columella'), the genus Dendroseris shows all characteristics of the genus Astreopora.
