There are several different morphs. I had one that was entirely purple and currently have 2, one is entirely green and the other has a purple base and appears to have green heads. To my knowledge they are all the same thing, similar to different zoa morphs. The only place I have seen a duncan listed under anything differently was on saltwaterfish.com having a duncan and a duncanopsammia under their SPS section, even though it is even labeled an SPS. But the scientific name is Duncanopsammia axifuga for all I've seen.

Yes, different morphs, same name! I do however find it odd to classify a Duncan as an SPS. I do not think I could trust a vender that could not classify a coral correctly.

It is classified correctly. There is one under LPS and another under SPS, just labeled as a LPS in the name. It is odd...just unsure as to why besides the fact that it could be some sort of different morph or a bushy rather than branching possibly. IDK.

Thanks for the explanation of it. By far it's my favorite in my tank right now!
