I may be wrong, but to me it looks more like a regular Giant Frogfish, Antennarius commersoni, with the think and bulby second spine.

It has a distinct tail base which leaves aside any Coccineus id. I cannot either find the distinct lure and first spine of the mummifer.  


Pls have a look at my Flickr photo gallery and leave a comment.
