History & Facts

The mushroom coral is named for its shape and the radiating skeletal walls (septa) that give this coral its mushroom-like appearance. These sharp septa also give rise to another common name, razor coral. This disc-like coral is found on quiet water reefs like those in Kāneʻohe Bay, where solitary individuals live detached from the reef. Mushroom corals do not form colonies like most other Hawaiian corals.

Early Hawaiians used the skeleton of the mushroom coral as an abrasive for polishing canoes and other woodwork, and for removing bristles from a pig’s skin before cooking.
