Is this a Leptastrea?

Pretty cool looking. It appears to be encrusting, but does not look like leptastrea to me. Keep it alive, make sure the hydroids don't bother it, and see what happens.

Thanks. Do you know how I can get rid of the hydroids without having to bother the unknown coral ?

That does look like a leptastrea. What color is the flesh in daylight? The polyps are golden even in daylight I think.

It is the same color during daylight, the actinic just adds that brightness.

if you turkey baste them, the polyps will de-flate and you might be able to see the color of the flesh which i can't make out from the actinic picture. the polyps are yellow, that much is clear.
