Argus Moray?

Argus eel.JPG

This photo was taken at 120 Ft on Roca Partida 240 miles off Cabo San Lucas near Socorro.  My best guess is the Argus Moray.  The mouth and teeth in the photo don't look exactly right though and I'm not seeing the tubular nostrils between the eyes.  Any other ideas? 


Argus Moray?

I found the real identy Enchelycore lichenosa, a lichen Moray.  Known only from Japan and Galapagos as stated in FISHES of the Tropical Eastern Pacific by Gerald R Allen-D.Ross Robertson.  Good find by Joel Ibarra, dive master on the Nautilus Explorer.

Great photo

Great photo.
