Lamarck, 1816 
Oculina is a genus of colonial stony coral in the family Oculinidae. These corals are mostly found in the Caribbean Sea, the Gulf of Mexico and Bermuda  but some species occur in the east Pacific Ocean. They occur at depths down to 1000 metres.
The colonies of Oculina have a straggly branching structure and are mostly pale yellow. The branches are slim, not exceeding 1 centimetre (0.39 in) in diameter. The corallites which house the polyps are widely separated. Their walls are composed of fragile, solid-walled tubes. Each corallite has 12 primary septae with fine teeth which partially project from the corallite wall and which are larger than the intermediate septae. Some species contain symbiotic microalgae called zooxanthellae.
