Porites colonensis

(Zlatarski 1990)
Colonies are thin plates or brackets with a relatively small attachment area. The surfaces are smooth, though the distinct calices give the appearance of a honeycomb structure.

Colour is usually brown. Polyps are lighter than the rest of the colony. This is an uncommon species, though distinctive because of its plate-like shape.

Photo 3 is a leafy, cryptic P.astreoides according to EW.
