Sydney Scorpionfish - an unexpected discovery...

Recommended Posts

For every videographer and photographer out there.... you might have footage of an unexpected new species!!! I almost didn't ask about this one but it made the day of Mark McGrouther at the Australian Museum...... They didn't know it existed until the early 2000's and it took them another 10 years to figure out what colour it was live!

Thanks for sharing. I just send out images to researchers in Hawaii and Russia for species where they only had preserved museum species to look at. Diving is a lot of fun but we are actually making very valuable observations, even though we may not realize it.
