    Yeah, it's an acanthophyllia. I got that wrong in an article once and Julian Sprung and Jake Adams were quick to correct me. Nothing like embarrassment to really drive home a lesson. LOL

    Acanthophyllia yes. There has been confusion between these and cynarina but if you put them side by side its pretty easy to see the difference. It has been cleared up in the taxonomy. Unless you believe Veron! :D
