Wow, I didn't know that either. So the red/blue scoly that ReefScience sold me is actually a green/orange cynarina!

Nto so sure it is from that one pic i've seen of yours.
Try googling cynarina and scolymia and have a look at them
I find it can be easy enough to tell the difference, but not so easy to explain.
Even reading bornemans description it didn't really help

They will open up and feed slightly differently too.
Sods law my cynarina is closed up right now, normally open the second the lights go off.
Will try and get a pic up for you tomorrow

Mine has those bony structures that radiate inwards from the outer edge to the center...look like spokes on a wheel.

Mine doesn't have the fancy colors, but I love it when it does this with food:

Compare the above with this very poor (taken by torchlight ) pic of my cynarina feeding



See how the cynarina has opened right out, whereas the scoly kind of unfolds but not as far?
