Distinguishing features

Distinguishing features still need to be specified.


  • Size data has not been obtained.



The only record of this species in the Lizard Island area is as Montipora cf. edwardsi by Kleeman (1995). There are no listings for that species in Australia (ALA accessed 17 April 2020). The Lizard Island record is likely to be a misidentification.
