Blue Zoas ID?

Buying these colorful blue zoas from a local reefer. He's selling me them a frag for $10. Anyone know the real name of these or if they are considered "rare" or "expensive"? Didn't see any on liveaquaria so can't really compare.

Look like blueberry zoas I think I just bought a small frag and they look quite similar.

That red mushroom might irritate them.

+1 the skirt colors are a must for a proper ID but they look pretty close to blueberry fields. Skirts are a little off though.. there are so many names for zoas its very hard to get a proper ID if you didn't buy then as a specific type to start.
