Description

An incredibly colored millepora-like coral that has some unique flare. The branch pigmentation is an unusual orange pink coloration. That color appears to be developed by pink or red pigments mixing with bright yellow pigments. The bright yellow pigments themselves are most intense at branch tips. There can also be some green pigments that occur in areas where the yellow pigment develops. When fully developed this pigment contrast is quite startling.
