Look at the size of the frag plug people, it's not LPS. It's clearly growing branches at the top. Certainly not indicative of an encrusting coral.

I have cyphastrea that is branching just like that in addition to encrusting elsewhere. And that clearly looks like it has encrusted a price of rock. Granted the polyps are a little small in relation to the plug that could be cause of a number of factors. To me it screams cyphastrea. More growth will show us more.

When I look at the picture it reminds me of my Marshall Island Latana. Obviously not for the color, but for the part where it is a montipora.
