Lembeh pipefish

Recommended Posts

5 or 6 inches long, white spots on sides, no skin flaps that I could see....

 

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Cheers,

Marli

Oh, Pipefish are hard, especially from this area. I will get back to you tomorrow when I am back to my office and check my books.

Thanks! I have a message into Gerry Allen, but he is often traveling.

Here is the scoop from Gerry Allen:

The pipefish is a species of Halicampus and most likely H. grayi.

Hi Marli

 

Been awaiting your i.d. with interest. I took this pic in Lembeh last October and wonder if you think it might be the same beast? If not, any suggestions?

I don't think it's the same; the snout is much longer. Might be Trachyrhamphus longirostris....or something else all together!
