Unidentified hitchhiker coral



Recommended Comments

Sorry for the horrible quality! Any idea what this might be? It has lots of relatively large dark orange polyps w/o any surface coral tissue connecting them.

Ok, after some netsearching I think it is some kind of Turbinaria - definitely Dendrophylliidae. Fortunately it's clearly photosynthetic - closing up at night.
