In Topic: Anyone know this worm (?) from Anilao

11 April 2016 - 04:06 AM

Hi,

 This looks very similar to a solengastre I photographed in the waters off Grand Cayman, BWI initially 5 years ago. It created a stir among experts at the time, as Know one had seen the likes of this particular one before. Photographed at nearly the same depth, I photographed another, or the same, in the same area last year. The difference between the two appears to be that some of the white areas on mine are raised into tiny ping pong ball extensions.

 

 I understand that experts are eager to have a specimen collected. Unfortunately, in order for me to do so, a special permit would be required, and there is no telling if I'd ever find one again.

 

Sweet find!!

 

Cindy

 


 


In Topic: Critter shot on the reef straits at Roatan, Honduras near CCV

 I was quite sure I recognized your critter but wanted to confirm it with Ben @ Coralreeffish.com. He agreed, Blackbelly Blenny. Sorry I 'm not aware of the Latin/ scientific name. I found one once many years ago, in the shallows of Grand Cayman. Very tiny,perhaps 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch.  moving between the algae clumps on the hard pan at either Cobalt  Coast or Turtle Reef..Tough to photograph, I got less than decent head on shot, but enough for someone at Reef to identify at the time. Havent seen one since, and I've been looking!!  Have never known any one else to find one either..Great find!!
