I'm working on a project and I need to know what kind of coral this is. Also, does it only grow in shallow water, or could it grow in deep water?


Thank you!!!

I posted some close-ups of the coral fragments in this reply.

They were found near the Azores. Sorry I don't know the depth.

Thank you!!

It looks kind like the skeleton of a Euphyllia coral or something like that.

Thank you!

Here is one more close-up that may be helpful... it shows more detailed "mushroom-like" structures than the other pictures.
