    Perhaps Pavona frondifera
    http://www2.aims.gov.au/coralsearch/html/401-500/Species%20pages/434.htm

    The close up picture of one in Corals of the World Vol. 2 page 183 looks a lot like yours.

    If I am right:

    Sprung says:
    Lighting needs: 3-9
    Water Flow: 3-9
    Aggressiveness: 7
    Hardiness: 9
    Placement: Chart shows that the species can thrive high, medium or low in the tank.

    Best of luck,

    Roy

    I would have thought aggressiveness to be a 9 .....
