Species Name: Polyphyllia talpina

Authority: (Lamarck, 1801)

Common Name: Plate/Slipper/Tongue Coral

Range: Indo-Pacific, Eastern Africa, and Western Pacific

Natural Environment: Inhabits reef slopes where Fungia is found

General Husbandry: Has a temperature range of 73 to 81°F (23 - 27°C). Pale brown or greenish with white tentacle tips. May show up in the trade, however, I’ve not yet seen it. Would require the same care as the Fungia species, and also comes in "I" "X" and "T" shapes.
