This coral is not "absolutely" anything. It is one of the most multi-named corals in the world. In the last 2years this coral has been imported and exported under at least 3 different scientific names.
Cynarina deshayesiana, Scolymia australis and now Acanthophyllia deshayesiana.
The red and green coral is a Scolymia vitiensis and is pretty rare in that colour form.
The Open brain is a Trachyphyllia geoffroyi.
Diving in the areas that these are found in is actually pretty poor. Similar to Catalaphyllia and Goniopora, these are sometimes found in silty, barren, turbid areas. Not as creepy as some Discosoma fields but not very scenic either.
