Taken in Ambon, Moluccas recently. Fishbase isn't much help as a lot of photos there are of dead specimens. Nearest  I seem to be able to find is Gymnothorax tile but there isn't much around to back this up

Jim,

 

Looks like a high-fin moray (Gymnothorax pseudothyrsoidens).

 

Cheers,

G. tile is usually found in the lower ranges of rivers and muddy estuaries. I also think it is most like a highfin moray.

Nigel & Bart

Have followed up your suggestion and done a lot of work on it. I'm sure you are right. Many thanks - would never have got there without you
