Kenya Tree coral has an erect tree-like structure with lateral branches that are heavily forked. On the top of the branches there are clusters of non-retractable polyps. The base or stalk is without polyps but has sclerites which makes the surface rough. Sclerites are calcium bodies that are various sizes like rice. The stalk is usually cream to brown with the polyps brown to greenish brown. There are a number of common names and corals are difficult to identify past genus, so species is left to the experts.
