Clubbed Finger Coral (Porites porites)


Inhabiting most areas of the reef to depths of 160 feet (48.8 m), the finger coral has clumps of smooth, short branches with swollen ends. The clubbed finger coral is beige, yellow-brown, brown, or gray with a purple tint in coloration. It is commonly found at the back reef, although much larger specimens may be found on the fore reef zone.
