As with other members of Order Cyclostomata, the zooecia are at least partly calcified and have simple openings, not closed by a constriction nor by an operculum. Lichenopora verrucaria forms a spreading, more or less disk-shaped, encrusting colony which does not grow by stolons. The colony is composed of tubes (zooecia) cemented together. Most of the tubes are scattered rather than in rows radiating from the original growth center. The ends of the calcified tubes can be clearly seen but do not have sharp points. The tubes are free of the surrounding matrix for much of their length.
