  1. Chowe, I think you are absolutely correct -- even though Allen and Steene's Reef Fish states this blenny has a "black stripe from eye to tail composed of rectangular segments," as their photo clearly shows. Karen
  2. Thank you very much, Chowe! You are right. (I even thought the bars were a distinguishing feature, since the books and so many web photos, including fishbase, had them on this blenny.)
  3. The problem is that mine does not have bars on the blck line - but thanks.
  4. This very active blenny was at 60 feet usually out of his hole/home in Triton Bay.
  5. Craig, Regarding Gosliner's 1st and 2nd editions. With the Doto ussis, they clearly discerned differences among the ussis and introduced several new "Doto sp." numbers. What really seems unnecessary, however, was to rename, for example, Doto sp. 10 as Doto sp. 12 etc. This is not explained by new knowledge. Karen
  6. This is not a Banded Sea Krait (Laticauda colubrina), which is white/silver/gray with black bands, rather than black with white banding. I would go with your first bet, the Taiwanese Bungarus multicinctus. As I understand it, this species of Bungarus eats fish and often inhabits brackish waters. If you found it miles offshore -- you do not say, that would certainly be very unusual; nevertheless, based on what we see of its appearance in your photograph, it certainly looks similar to the Taiwanese Bungarus multicinctus and is definitely not Laticauda.
  7. No. 1 and No. 2 are Doto nudibranchs, identified in Gosliner's 2d edition as Doto sp. 2. Although you do not give any indication of size, No. 3 appears to be Aplysia oculifera. See http://www.seaslugforum.net/aplyocul.htm. The A. oculifera photographed at Dumaguete by Erwin Koehler (http://www.seaslugforum.net/find/10110) and the one I photographed (attached), both look less transparant than yours, but if you look at others at http://www.seaslugforum.net/aplyocul.htm, you will see that many resemble yours. Do you have a better photograph of No. 4?
  8. Tail fin differs from typical "definitive" Two-Spot Wrasse tail, though Popp's Images has one photo with this more fan-like tail. I cannot find any other wrasse as close. Can anyone help?
  9. Another frogfish from Ambon Bay that I cannot ID.
  10. I could not find any anemone remotely lie this in the books or web. Ambon, Banda Sea, Indonesia.
  11. There are nudibranchs, NOT the parents, on these unidentified eggs from Ambon Bay, Indonesia.
  12. Can anyone identify this goby pair from Ambon Bay, Indonesia?
