Blenny from Bonaire


I was entering keywords on some older images and found this photo of what I had thought at first glance to be a Molly miller. When you look closely the red and white frills behind the head are NOT there. The cirri and horns most resemble that of a Redlip blenny but the coloration is all wrong.

newly settled Ophioblennius

Ophioblennius macclurei larvae settle quite large and can be transparent or mottled or even tiger striped for a few days.
