    It looks like a acanthophyllia deshayesiana, aka meat coral.

    Its hard to tell with a single poly like that has. I would say it is not a acanthophillia or Bali Scoly...Here are some potential Lobos...in the order I think is mostly likely:


    Lobophyllia robusta ..(look at photo at the bottom)
    Lobophyllia flabelliformis
    Lobophyllia hemprichii
    Lobophyllia hataii

    or possibly a Symphyllia:
    Symphyllia agaricia

    The texture is off for it to be a meat coral

    It looked very similar to this, and is why I called it what I did. The only difference I noticed was the way the mouths looked.

    Yeah, it looks similar to meat coral except meat coral is usually more puffy and has a slightly different texture.
