Hello,
My understanding is that the PC Rainbow is a member of the A. Cervicornis genus. (Please correct me if I'm wrong). I would like to see other species belonging to this genus as well as their trade names or common reef hobby names.
Thanks,
Andrew

Acropora cervicornis is a species, not a genus. It is only found in the Western Atlantic/Caribbean, is brown in color, and staghorn in growth form (Staghorn is its common name as well). It is federally protected so you shouldn’t see it in the aquarium trade.

Yep, A. Cervicornis is its own species. There's very little similarities between it and PC Rainbow other than both being Acropora.
