Snyderina yamanokami. a waspfish, related to the scorpionfishes.Junichi KOJIMA says possibly a Snyderina yamanokami. a waspfish, related to the scorpionfishes. Shot in Anilao about 10 feet from the surface. Perhaps one of the most beautiful fish I have ever seen.
ID by Junichi KOJIMA, 小嶋純一 , David Johnson and Bruce C. Mundy. Per Anthony Gill possibly Rhinopias species (though perhaps all of these have the dorsal origin a little farther back); Erosa erosa; Syanceia species; and Richardsonichthys leucogaster
