Cycloseris distorta (hobbyists often refer to these as Diaseris plates)

These grow in wedge like segments due to autonomy; (the ability to weaken areas of its skeleton to break itself apart).

They can reach about 3” in diameter when grown out.

This Fungia is often an irregular shape and

prefers a sand bed with crushed coral or large sand particles, rather than fine sand, or even a lower flat shelf rock to sit on.

Preferring low-moderate light (PAR 80-150) and low to moderate flow.

Fungias have the ability to inflate and move around so give it plenty of space from other corals.

In 2011,Diaseris corals were reclassified into the cycloseris genus due to its molecular breakdown and can be found in many areas of the world including Australia, Madagascar, Indonesia etc.
