#333798 Unknown Fishes @ Point Lobos (NorCal)

Posted by ryann1k2j on 02 July 2013 - 06:17 PM

Top guy, the cute one,  is a stripefin ronquil (Rathbunella alleni)*, not uncommon, but rarely seen. Nice shot.

Middle of the totem pole is the broad-headed coralline sculpin (Artedius corallinus), fairly common, especially at the Breakwater.

Bottom guy is indeed corynactus, one of the brighter colors around central California.

If you likes them critters, Daniel Gotshall's "Pacific Coast Inshore Fishes" is an excellent go-to book.

 

*Spell check is underlining "ronquil". Makes me think less of it.
