    Hello All,

    I picked this up about a month ago and it had some slight colour but it was mostly creamy brown. It has really coloured up quickly. I think it is A. Butanai but I'm not sure. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Pic has been over saturated to get the right colour you see with your eyes.

    This is a pic I found on line that captures the colour well.

    Have fun!

    Yeah... I know. I know it's an acro but I was hoping someone may give me a good educated guess.;) I now think it may be A. Batunai???

    What Ivan is saying is that to get a 100% identification, one can only do it with a skeletal sample, mostly the tips or a cross section of a skeletal structure that a polyp forms.
