It does resemble features of green digitata. Maybe you can get a more clear up close pic?

Looks more like hydnophora then a digitata. A closer pic would help but I'm almost positive it's hydnophora.

In my opinion, hydnophora's skeleton have more sharp indentions on it unlike digitata which have a more smoother appearance (which in this case is hard to tell since the coral itself if fully open). The hydnophora have more larger tentacles unlike the digitata which have flower like appearance on its polyps.

I agree it's to hard to tell but from the pic and growth formation it looks more like hydnophora then digitata.

Staring at it, I totally get what you're saying. It does look like it.
