                  Nice looking specimins, so are granulosa thicker/fatter? Is that the difference?

                    Hi Koi, thats how Veron describes both:

                    Loripes: Colonies have many shapes varying from upright bushes to tick plates. There is a continuous range of shape and size between the axial and the radial corallites, both may be tubular to nearly spherical, with very thick walls. Tubular axial corallites often have no radial corallites on one side and pocket-like radial corallites are smooth and rounded.

                    Granulosa: Colonies are semi-circular horizontal plates, usually less than one metre across. Plates are composed of regularly spaced horizontal branches with short inclined branches composed mostly of one or more axial corallites. Radial corallites are small and pocket-like.
