What you have is a Montastrea, possibly M. curta. This group of Favids is distinquished by extratentacular budding, which is to say, the new daughter polyps develope between the others, rather than an adult polyp dividing in the middle (typical of Favia, Favites) Do you know where this cral came from? There are Atlantic and Pacific species of the genus. Also, how large are the individual adult corallites?
