Can I get an I.D on this little gem?

I know it's a ricordea, and it's parent was pretty much identical but with bulbs on the mouth. So I guess that makes this a Yuma, but I'd like to know if anybody knows the name of this colormorph

I know these are not the best pics; I used a point and shoot at 2 in the morning LOL

It's base is purple, the bulbs are green, and the mouth is yellow, if that's of any help

Most mushrooms aren't "named" like a lot of the other corals out there. So Ricordea Yuma.

Yumas have vessicles all up and around the mouth. I don't see that in this pic. Leaning towards D sanctithomae or a vietnamese mushroom - don't know the species of the bubble shrooms from there.

With fronds like these, who needs anemones?

Def a yuma, just a small one. I have a few and they look just like this one.

agreed baby yuma looks like mine that just had a baby.

Everyday look in the mirror and tell yourself that you're unique,
just like everybody else.
