Knobby Star Coral GALLERY

Solenastrea hyades

This coral forms lobbed domes, although sometimes encrusts rocks. The difference between the Knobby Star Coral and the Massive Starlet coral is that the polyps rims are darker than the surrounding area.  These pictures were taken in about two feet of water.
