    whats the difference?
    as i have various hammers, frogspawn and torches. they all look the same either with a color or skeletal difference.
    the above pic however has the same skeleton as Euphyllia sp. but the heads itself are completely different.
    looking at all the pics of Euphyllia on Google images, none looks like above.

    when i google Duncanopsammia axifuga, i find what i have posted.

    Sorry but Duncan's are quite rare locally and the picture you posted is not a Duncan look at the tentacles Duncan's have pointed end
    tentacles similar to some anemones not the rounded tentacle of euphyllia like in your pic hence one of their common names being whisker corals
