Scorpionfish from Ambon

Recommended Posts

These two fish of the same species were found at two different sites in Ambon, Indonesia. The top one was found at 35 feet and the bottom one at 50 feet. Does anyone know the scientific name?

Estuary Stonefish, Synanceia horrida, i would say, as opposed to the reef stonefish. The key feature is the big pit behind the eyes
