Question for the Fossil Experts

In the case of corals, would the size of the coral cells absolutely indicate a different type of coral? The reason I ask is, the "Petoskey" is a six sided celled coral (not always completely uniform), and if one were to find a six sided celled coral but on a much smaller scale than the typical "Petoskey" would that indicate a different type of coral or possibly a "Petoskey" in a more juvenile stage? If you think you know the answer, buzz in now! Just kiddin.
For anyone interested here is a link you may want to read from.
