Your frogfish and cone IDs look good to me. Hawaii is definitely in the range for Antennarius maculatus.

Davide, I was also shocked with the amount of stuff I managed to shoot in 9 days, but such is the density and variety of life there. 3 or 4 x 90 minute dives per day and excellent guiding helped. No idea when I'll get back. Just getting wet again anywere will be a start. It's been a long time.

 

Here's part 18 which features nudibranchs, sea slugs that have lost their protective shell, but compensate with more advanced weapons of defence.

Thanks!

 

Did you also get some close up footage of what looks like a skeleton shrimp that appears in the background at about 2:40?

 

I'm afraid not. I don't think that's a skeleton shrimp. I think it's possibly a squat lobster.

Thanks leo999 and welcome to the forum.

 

After a brief look at the amazing flame scallop (or "electric clam"), part 17 features some of the sea snails (gastropods) found in the Lembeh Strait.
