Help to ID this coral

I picked this up at a local store, as a hitchhiker.

It appears to grow as a mat, brown on colour when closed. Polyps are small maybe 2mm across at maximum size.

Thought I would start in the Soft coral section for an ID. I suspected maybe some kind of micro Zoanthid/Paly but locally others seem to think some kind of leather.

Looks like Cyphastrea, an LPS.
