This Oxypora has a meaty outer edge that primarily contains bright pink pigments along with some blue pigmentation. The corals inner surface area is colored deep bright red. Within this red area there are also some orange pigments. The orange pigmentation intensifies around the corals mouth area, which makes the polyp mouths appear bright orange within a bright red inner surface. Overall the corals pigmentation contains a Rainbow of colors.
