I took this photo near the shark cave dive site in Puerto Galera, Mindoro, Philippines about 80 feet depth. No one on the dive knew the name of this critter.
Definitely a Flying Gunard, Dactyloptena orientallis, the dead give aways are the broad head, the great pectoral fins and the elogations on the end of the pectoral fins.
Sea Robins have a narrow snout and not as broad of a head.
