    If the base (coenenchyme) of each of the polyps are still connected to each other as well as the rock, you have palythoa sp

    If they are just close together and they are not connected (like a mat), you have Protopalythoa sp

    Since they are both in the Zoanthus Genus and their care needs are almost identical, most people just call both species button polyps.
