  1. Hi Leslie and All? Something similar? http://www.poppe-images.com/images/image_i...hp?picid=942877 greetings Philippe
  2. I apologize - a technical glitch. The images are showing now. Let me know if some still have problems. Philippe
  3. Hi all, When cruising the south of Ormoc Bay, Visayas, Central Philippines, last week I met some fishermen that took a few samples of living Argonauta hians. A search on google did not reveal any photos of living animals - a few museum pieces on alcohol only. These are possibly the first photographs of living A. hians. You can enjoy them on: http://www.poppe-images.com/lab/search_res...egory=Octopuses Since a few months we developed special techniques to photograph pelagic critters. You can watch Atlanta attacking Creseis: http://www.poppe-images.com/images/search_...is%20acicula#fs Or look at living Cavolinidae : they move as butterflies and are very hard to photograph in the wild: http://www.poppe-images.com/images/search_...CAVOLINIIDAE#fs Mabuhay, Guido
  4. Maybe it is Dendrodoris tuberculosa (looks te same in a Debelius book). Philippe
  5. nice photo, good enough to get an ID, but why would your guide want to touch it when you are taking photographs of it? It is a Paron shrimp - Gelastocaris paronae from the family HIPPOLYTIDAE. they have an almost exact picture in the book from Crustacea from Debelius (2001). Philippe
  6. Nice picture of the janolus sp. Still rare I think. We have had 2 encounters with it and the second time we saw one we took it and put in an alcholol solution for scientists of the NMHN - but no news from it anymore. I have to ask Guido if he knows what happened to it. Here are some pictures of ours: janolus species Philippe
  7. Leslie has put already id on the nudis and flatworm The first nudi is really an amazing animal Philippe
  8. Didn't find anything - only a possible genus: Helcogramma from the family: Tripterygiidae. Philippe
  9. I would put it as: Thecacera cf. pacifica - It is probably a color variation of the above species, but one can never be sure with seaslugs... If the variations can be as big as with Thecacera picta then probably pacifica would fit the above seaslug. Philippe
  10. wow - great pictures! First one I could find: a young weedy scorpionfish: Rhinopias frondosa.. its a guess but probably correct.
  11. Yep, got a probably id: Corythoichthys schultzi
  12. Yes they (Nembrotha chamberlaini) are mating - we have had several times the opportunity to photograph this behaviour. link to more mating... Philippe
  13. I agree with Marli first choice on the second pipefish: the C. flavofasciatus - all is about the 2 vertical stripes on the eyes. This pipefish has different eye - same as C. flavofasciatus The first pipefish is a mystery - I need to do some digging. grtz Philippe
  14. Beautiful photographs - congratulations Philippe & Guido
