Hey guys.
I know everybody grimaced at the chance to identify something when the photo sucks, but here it is anyway.

I got this coral thru a live sale, and by process of elimination from the invoice it should have been some kind of favia. Im not so sure.

Here is a pic with the polyps out and one with them retracted.

Its in a bad spot for pics just yet as I'm not sure it is something I want in plain view.

I was concerned it was just a rock with some gsp or something but don't think this vendor rolls like that. Very reputable and tried and true with my own experience. I have sent him an email, but thought I would try the reef squad til he gets back to me.

It is a stylophora/ pocilapora/ or montis Ora of some sort. Not a Millie, not an acro at all, definitely not a favia. Better pictures would help determine what but it is an easier sps of some sort
Thank you, I will try and get a better pic.

I wanted to try and give this another shot.
Might be a little better pics.
This guy seems to have greenish skin with orange polyps that sweep out a bit.
I never heard back from the vendor I got it from. It would up only being like a $5 frag so it's a win win on my book.

I think stylocoeinellia.
By Jove I think you got it. Just watched the Tidal Gardens narration on it. Some of his clips were dead on.
That would also explain vetteguys goni response.

Now I know what to do find it's permanent home.
Thanks
