True Superman?

I was looking at getting a frag of the superman monti but I found two different names for them. Which one is the real name?
TIA!
Montipora tuberculosa
or
Montipora Danae?

Many of the montipora sp. can only be positively identified by looking at the corallites under a microscope (there is no "superman" species.....it's just a name someone came up with). Taking that into consideration, most superman being sold I think are m. danae.

Thanks guys! Yeah the ones that I've found in the lfs around here are the M. Danae. However, all the ones online are m. tuberculosa. I just wanted to make sure that one wasnt some generic type or something that was turned that color artificially. Dr.F&S have some big frags for pretty cheap that I was looking at getting but again that is the m. tuberculosa. Maybe I'll just get it and have to find out for myself. Thanks for the link melosu-

No problem. Like I said I was just guessing.
