Leptoseris hawaiiensis


"Locally common in deep water, forming broad vase or plate-like colonies. Calices are elevated and tilted toward the outside. Wide flat septa studded with granular processes, with narrow smooth septa inbetween, especially toward the margins. Leptoseris scabra is very similar but septa are highly contorted. Hawaii, Indo-Pacific & Tropical Eastern Pacific." Source: http://www.marinelifephotography.com/corals/agariciidae/leptoseris-hawaiiensis.htm
