So I spotted this coral while diving at the Great Barrier Reef. At first glance I figured it's some sort of Pavona or Leptoseris, but I don't think it is. I'm not even sure if it's even a SPS or LPS.

Sorry couldn't get better shots. Hopefully the top-down vertical structures can help with the identification.

does remind me of a leptoseris a bit
