The Key Lime Mango Sherbert Mycedium is an exotically colored Mycedium coral. The main surface of the coral develops a bright green to turquoise green pigmentation. This green contrasts strongly with the orange colored corallites. These corallites are surrounded with a dark green pigmentation. The mouth of the corallites contain pink pigmentation and the corallites themselves have various colored grains of pigment within them (see corallite closeup image below). The surface of the coral can contain a dense distribution of corallites (see corallite group image below) that gives small to large colonies a striking appearance.
