Triplefin Parasite

Recommended Posts

Any ideas on what type of parasite this is inside the Triplefin's mouth?

Another isopod. These tongue parasites are actually pretty common although this is the first I've seen in a triple fin.

I was long gone from Lembeh when I took this shot, it was taken on Christmas Day on Ningaloo Reef. Maybe it's a Ningaloo Nutty Bar. :good:
