NatureServe Conservation Status
Rounded Global Status Rank: G3 - Vulnerable
Reasons: Species occurs throughout tropical western Atlantic and is able to colonize turbulent reef zones. Moderate sedimentation and nutrient loading are considered significant threats. This species relies on extensive water movement for maintenance of colony surfaces. Eutrophication of nearshore reefs may lead to an increased incidence of disease and limited recruitment.
