Dear Daphne,

thank you for your answer. 

I can
personally guarantee the correct identification of these specimens, as
this species displays a distinct morphology. They show up all over the
U.S., in stores. I have seen specimens in Europe (The Netherlands) this
year as well. It is sometimes however shipped under a different name,
making it "legal" to ship the specimens (e.g. Catalaphyllia
jardinei or Euphyllia spp.).
