Harry Bushwitz on Facebook claims this is a "New coral species found near the Galapagos Islands." No attribution.

Not only him. My image went viral through internet and someone posted it claiming this statement you mention.

It is impossible for me to keep track, because it has been shared hundred of thousand of times (no exaggeration) and no much I could do. But it amuses me to see people's reaction.

I never claimed it as other than a 3d fractal digital work, done with Mandelbulb 3D software.

For what it's worth, I tracked down the originator of the post my friend shared, and gave them both the correct attribution. Pushing back against the tide...
