Nemanzophyllia turbida Hodgson & Ross 1981, very thin-walled skeletons of flabello-meandroid construct. Distinctive lined polyps that are joined and truncated by living and dead portions of colonies. Best kept in medium current in low light conditions. Aquarium pic.
Plerogyra simplex Rehberg 1892. Similar vesicles as P. sinuosa but colonies with branched skeletons of phaceloid colonies. Specimens off of Lembeh, Sulawesi, Indonesia.

Catalaphyllia jardinei Saville-Kent 1893, the Elegance Coral. V-shaped bottom Flabello-meandroid skeletons with sharp septa, no columellae. Very fleshy polyps that extend to large striped oral discs. Lives mostly buried in soft substrates; found only in areas of turbid, muddy water. Covered in typical Waminoa flatworms here in Lembeh, N. Sulawesi, Indo.  
Plerogyra sinuosa (Dana 1846). Flabello-meandroid skeleton as shown, with grape-like variable vesicles that are slow to retract (but still can/do sting). Typically found in turbid water.  One scrunched down in Lembeh, N. Sulawesi, Indo.
