This cool image was sent to us by Luke Wilson of House of Fins showing their Siamese UFO Scolymia’s striking appearance. While there isn’t much of a story here, we still love sharing with you the unique and one-off specimens of deliciously unique LPS corals that come along from time to time.
Today’s spotlight is cast on this very striking double headed “siamese” Scolymia australis which also happens to be sporting a bold coloration. The pattern of a dark ring in large polyp stony corals has been commonly referred as the “UFO” trait and it is most often seen in Scolymia, Acanthastrea and similar corals.
Some corals are extremely special for their intricately colored and patterned appearance, especially when you can get really close to it and feature its beauty with a great macro photograph on a large screen. However there’s a special category of corals that look great from “across the room” and the boldly patterned and colored Siamese UFO Scolymia from House of Fins rates very high on that scale.
