    My ugly looks a lot like a Miyagi. I have no idea what it is.

    I will take the unknown Stag and the Hyacinthus thank you very much. o_O

    The first unknown looks like Millepora, nice coloration.

    That miyagi is a very ugly brown currently. Can't wait for the deep purple like my other miyagi colony.

    I'm always open to trade ;)

    And I thought so too, but the axial corallite is flatter and more pronounced than a typical millepora.

    The problem is, there are waaaay too many purple with green base tort like acros lol.

    On a side note, I think loripes and nasuta are very closely related species.

    It's this one, not sure could be an Enchinata, just not sure.

    Nawww not Nausta and Loripes. I got this Nasuta from Ken at ReefCorner, it's growing well and coloring up, it's a wild Nausta.

    Loripes and Granulosa, yeah I have to go and look.

    I know polyps are not something to ID by, but I've never seen echinata with anywhere near that much polyp extension. Looking at that darker picture, I believe I have the same or very similar, both in my tank and at one of the displays at work. I'll take pictures when I get a chance. My piece is barely .5", the other is about 1". Mine looks like a vermiculata, but flow and lighting can change growth way too much.

    Looking at corallite structure and growth patterns (of colonies), they look similar to me. Maybe it's a case of convergent evolution.
