LPS id

I am going with blasto favia favia.

 

Those are all favia/favites, no idea on exact species
I am leaning towards the same even though the first one has the texture of a blasto.

The last one kinda looks like acan enchinata
It does but usually a Echinata doesn't dip down that far around the eyes/mouth.

 

I'm going to follow this thread because that first one is throwing me for a loop.
I agree!
What kind of fav is the first one? It's so...smooth.
+1 never seen a favia that smooth either.

Yea was about to say, no idea where the acan IDs came from. Very nice finds though.

I just thought that the heads on the last pic look rather separate which is what lead me to call acan rather than favia. Still a noob when it comes to genus and species ID. Any way to clearly explain faviids vs acans?

I find acan echinata has more rounded eyes/mouths and tends to look more fluffy than favia. Acan lords when inflated look like separate polyps IMO.
