ID on a green plating coral?


New member
I've grown this coral out from the size of a quarter to where it is now, probably 14-16 inches across. I have no idea what the genus is, much less a species-level identification. Any suggestions? (I know the branching SPS above the green plate is Stylophora).

colors and textures
Monti would be a good guess generally for a plating coral, but I'm not feeling it in this case.

The surface texture to me suggests a type of Turbinaria.

I was debating between Turbinaria and Montipora. I've got what's definitely a Montipora to the left of the mystery plate (see image). I just looked at some Turbinaria images and agree that the texture/polyp spacing looks a lot more like Turbinaria than Montipora.

Thank you!
