The Galactic Inferno Lithophyllon is a bright orange Lithophyllon species coral with bright blue corallites. A very rare and unusual color combination for stony corals. We have seen colorful Lithophyllon specimens before, but they have all been colored green with blue corallites. Lithophyllon species corals all have very unique corallite structures and coloration. In general they can be confused with Leptoseris corals, but their corallites are very unique as can be seen in the image below. Also note the white ringed mouths.
