A unique species, blue coral (Heliopora coerulea) is the sole member of the order Helioporacea. Blue corals are thus named for their distinctive, permanently blue skeleton, which is generally hidden by greenish-grey or blue polyps. The coral polyp is basically an anemone-like animal that secretes a skeleton, at the base of which it is joined to other polyps to form a colony. The polyps of the blue coral each have eight tentacles, and the colonies form branching, plate-like or columnar colonies.
