There is a multitude of color variations and polyp types within the species. I have a PBS (NOVA?) show on corals on my dvr at home. Doing DNA tetsting on corals they found that there are several (a dozen?) super species that have spread around the world due the oceans currents. Depending on conditions where they settle and form new colonies they can look completely different.
