    Definitely not cerealis. See the difference in growth form between the two.

    and

    The pic shown above has very stubby branches and large, dome-shapped axial corallites.

    If you look at the top corallite of the example picture shown above, you will see that the coloured new growth occupies nearly the entire width of the stalk. This is one of the diagnostic features of A. humilis. If you look at the top corallite of the A. cerealis, it is much smaller. A. humilis branches are much stalkier than those of A. cerealis as well.

    Here is a pic of my A. humilis.
