    that isn't montipora- it is either stylophora or poccilopora- probably stylophora...very different from montipora. If it was named montipora, they are very mistaken.
    On second thought, it could even be seriatopora. (birdsnest) but I think it's stylo.

    My first guess was pocillopora.

    Matts' correct.., probably Stylophora. Pocillipora is usually thicker/club like branches and more closed as a colony, while Stylo has thinner more open branches.
