Sand Goby - Istigobius sp.

05 October 2015 - 06:25 AM

Due to their variability, I always have bother deciding which of the various species I have photographed. This doesn't quite look like the common Decorated Sandgoby, I. decoratus. The general colour, distribution of spots, strong scale outlines and the faint bar running back from the eye suggest to me that it may be something different. Any views please? 

Taken Lembeh in no great depth.

No clue at all with this one but could be a juvenile? Raja Ampat, pretty shallow. Help appreciated

Stuck with this one. It has been suggested it may be a juvenile Oplopomus caninoides but not really happy with that due to the head profile particularly. Any better ideas please? Taken Lembeh Straits.

Ghost Pipefish

13 February 2015 - 07:56 AM

Having some trouble pinning these down due to lack of expert information. Hope somebody can help


No. 1 looks superficially like a Robust, Solenostomus cyanopterus but the caudal peduncle is far too long. Could it be S.armatus?


2,3 & 4 I have them down provisionally as S. leptosoma, Delicate Ghostpipefish


5 Maybe a Roughsnout given all the hairy projections


1 & 5 taken in Ambon, the others in Lembeh
