Does one branch and the other doesn't? Some consider them all the same species (Euphyllia divisia = non-branching) and some refer to them as two species or sub-species (Euphyllia paradivisia = branching). It's hard to tell from the pics to me it looks like they are both branching, but the polyps look fuller on one and slightly different, I would suspect that difference was formed more from environmental conditions than by any difference in species.

the one with the larger polyps is not branching, but the other one is. Amazingly enough, the non-branching one is only about 3" in diameter when retracted.
