The Left Behind Favia has a couple of unique contrasting pigment characteristics. Inner corallite areas are primarily colored pink, but the corallite mouths appear bright orange. The second unique pigment contrast occurs between the turquoise green valleys and the inner pink corallite mouths. These pigment contrasts help to give the Left Behind Favia a rather distinct appearence that can be a little difficult to fully capture within a photographic image.
