This Acropora was named in honor of Dr. Emre Turak!
Characters: Colonies are subarborescent with bottlebrush branches where upright main branches form clumps. Axial, incipient axial and radial corallites all intergrade. Axial corallites are long and tubular while the smallest radial corallites are pocket-like.
Similar Species: Acropora longicyathus, which has shorter axial corallites and is therefore less bottlebrush-like. See also A. echinata, which has finer corallites.
