Montipora & Acropora are 2 types of coral genus. Each is then divided into species. M. digitata, M. danae, A. tortuosa & A. valida are all species level identifications.

As NYPDfrogman mentioned, Borneman's book goes into great detail about the taxonomy of corals.

Dean,

You got anything that talks about how the zooxanthellae are incorporated into the coral. Kinda like that last one with pictures showing the layers. I'm specifically looking to learn more about how the pigments of the coral and zoox interact and also how the coral controls the zoox. Thanks.

Not sure if these are what you're looking for, but they're a good read nonetheless:

You need to take a look at J.E.N. Veron's 3 book set Corals of the World. It has a lot of information on distinguishing characteristics, however it is definately an expert level book.
