    Thought of placing it here as I know the SPS freaks do not normally browse the ID index.

    Doesn't look like SPS to me.. those polyps are pretty big!!!

    Seems like dendrophyllia cribrosa

    Thanks @K_ONE , I googled the name you gave, but the polyp "housing" on the photos I see on Google does not look the same:
