In Topic: Dragonet in Komodo, Indonesia

I'm full of critter ID requests today. :)

I have a book from 2003 with this one in it which is undescribed. Synchiropus sp. with the same eye markings, the appendage above the eye (which I have never noticed in other Dragonet species) marbling, etc...of course they are going to be very variable depending on the location, time of day, what they eat...etc....

I think I took pictures of the same one or in the same area and if it was the same dive, I thought it was odd the male was so brightly "lit up" for the middle of the day.

Castle Rock? haha, i always have wide angle there :) The 4 on a nudi was cool too!

Yes, we have found fleas up in the north, but usually the ones that look like the ladybugs from down south.

At Disaster Bay (Garry's name) you can find three different types up in the shallows (6m depth) the yellow/blue striped the lady bugs and the black yellow spotted. But, they aren't highly concentrated like they are at Yellow wall. The ones at Castle rock were the ladybugs, but also highly concentrated on some things, like sponges with nudi's.

the navy has always stopped me from diving in Maumere harbour.. one of my guides got arrested once hahaha... (when he worked on another boat) The navy guys are kinda touchy about it. So you guys are lucky to have dove there at all :D

Botak: nice collection :D

Did anyone convince Gaza to cut his hair? :)

I almost cut it, but then I couldn't have named the nudi I found on the last the day the Hairy Garry. It does resemble him, no? So, I'm glad I didn't give it the chop.
