Identification help please

I thought I knew a great deal, but every now and then...

I bought this on a whim because it is a beautiful burgundy with an almost velvety look to it, and it was cheap. The mouths have a very subtle orange/gold color to them. Frag plug is 1" square for reference, and the piece behind it is a monty.

Well, from a quick Google search it sure seems like it!

Sounds like a good little score too, we'll see how it colors up.

Hopefully it lives up to its reputation as far as growth, I really like it. Nice looking coral, it's already getting some orange in the mouths.
