Coral Identification

Ok here is something that has been getting my curiosity lately... And i have been seeing it getting larger and larger and figure its about time that I figure out what it is.. Also since we are at it.. I bought this elegance today and it seems to differ from the others I have seen and I wanted to make sure that it is indeed an Elegance..





TIA,
James

Agreed Catalaphyllia jardinei = Elegance coral.

These are common hitchikers on carribean rock, non-photosynthetic and pack a powerful sting.
