No way it's a favia it's some type of a montipora. But there are so many types of them

A not so blue pic would help but I'm almost 100% sure that's not a monti. It's an lps of sorts. I don't think it is leptastrea either.

Encrusting doesn't mean it's a monti. Favias encrust, acropora encrust, pavona, merulina, etc all encrust. The mouths on it really do not appear to be a monti.a less blue pic would definitely help a lot.

Pavona coral.

Or possibly merulina.

Better pic would help as mentioned.

Oh that helps a lot. It is most likely merulina, not a favia or monti.
