Brain Coral assortment

Diploria sp.


Many marine environments, most common on rubble or reefs between 20-40ft.


There is a great slab of concrete rubble laying diagonally out of the sandy floor here with many of these brain corals from small fist size ones to basketball size growing on them. NOTE: at least two species here - the two on the left and two on the right all seem to be the Symmetrical Brain Coral (Diploria strigosa) the large one at center is Grooved Brain Coral (Diploria labyrinthiformis); the smaller yellow center one might be the same, but I suspect is a Rose Coral (Manicina areolata)
