That's OK, Alvin! Maybe someday I'll be able to get better, more descriptive pictures of this one.

im sure its a type of Acropora but i just cant get a fix on it.. sorry.

I see what you mean, Alvin. This one doesn't have evenly distributed corallites.

actually a D. heliopora has a very "clean" evenly distributed corallites with a domed shape and an even surface.

Hmmm... Difficult, isn't it? For now, can we keep it as D. heliopora?

perhaps an Acropora palmerae? unless we can see the skeleton and its attachment..
