Gorgonian often hosting the pygmy seahorse (Hippocampus bargibanti).

The large fans are up to 1.20 m tall and wide.
Their branches are thick and the coenenchymal spindles are of medium size, no longer than 0.8 mm.
The tentacles are red in life, contrasting to the white sclerites.
Most specimens observed are branched in one plane, some with the terminal branches directed to one side.
