Corallum morphology in Fungiidae (according to Hoeksema 1989)

When intrastomatal and circumoral budding dominate over peripheral budding, the stomata are distributed in an either aggregates or irregular pattern. When peripheral budding dominates, the secondary stomata are more evenly arranged.

Fungia sp. & Heliofungia sp.: a round and monostomatous animal
Fungia sp.: an oval animal with a long mouth
Ctenactis crassa: intrastomatal budding along the central axis in an elongate animal
Sandalolitha dentata: circumoral budding, predominantly along the axis in an oval animal
Sandalolitha robusta: evenly distributed secondary stomata developed by peripheral and circumoral budding in an oval animal
Zoopilus sp.: as the former, with smaller secondary stomata
Polyphyllia sp.: an elongate animal with relatively large stomata along the central axis, and smaller ones evenly distributed alongside it by peripheral and circumoral budding
Herpolitha sp.: an elongate animal with large stomata developing along the central axis by intrastomatal budding, and in irregularly formed rows alongside the axis by circumoral and peripheral budding
Halomitra sp.: a round animal with a large mouth at the center of the polyp and secondary stomata spaced in a clustered pattern by circumoral and peripheral budding
Lithophyllon sp.: a round coral with small secondary stomata developing in a slightly irregular pattern by peripheral and circumoral budding
Podobacia sp.: an animal with a slightly oval outline and secondary stomata developing in an evenly distributed pattern by peripheral and circumoral budding
