I've hunted through all my ID book but cannot find what this rascal might be - although the markings are distinctive enough. Can anyone help?

 

Seen at Puerto Galera, on the reef, daytime.

 

Thanks!

Hi Tim,
do you have a shot from the side as well?
Could it be a anthias species?
Body colour and marks on the fins....

Regards,
Wolfgang

Hey Wolfgang

 

Sadly, no I don't have a side shot. I was actually aiming to get a head-on pic and never thought about trying to ID it!

 

Anthias is a possibility for sure. It was Anthias/small Damselfish size.

I think its an Anthia.

 

I have a couple of pics of the exact same fish on my desktop at home, taken at Andamans, India. Will share this evening/night so that even i can know the ID.

Thanks Diggy, yeah, could be. The colouration on the fins is certainly there.

 

Much appreciated
