The Bloody Mary Montipora cebuensis coral is a plating coral that has large verrucae or bumps on its surface. That is a rather unique combination (see above image). This coral can be basically described as a plating verrucosa-like coral. In addition to its unique morphology, the Bloody Mary has a solid pink/red coloration. Polyps are also pigmented dark red.
