Yellow finger coral

Madracis auretenra

''Madracis auretenra'', commonly known as the yellow finger coral or yellow pencil coral, is a colonial species of stony coral in the family Astrocoeniidae. It is a fairly common species and is found in the Caribbean Sea and western Atlantic Ocean. At one time this species was not recognised, but it was split from ''Madracis mirabilis'' on the grounds of morphology and depth range.
