Info

Acanthosphex leurynnis (Jordan & Seale, 1905)

Velvetfishes are a family, the Aploactinidae, of scorpaeniform fishes.

Acanthosphex leurynnis, commonly known as The Wasp-spine Velvetfish, is a tiny cryptic velvetfish. Colour usually dark brown to mottled light brown, sometimes with whitish patches on the head and lower sides, often whitish pectoral and caudal fins with a brown wavy band on the outer part.

The Wasp-spine Velvetfish has two spines pointing behind its eye and four more behind its chin. The chin has a pair of short tentacles. Given its small size and camouflaged coloration, divers rarely see this singular fish.

Synonymised names:
Cocotropus dezwaani Weber & de Beaufort, 1915
Prosopodasys leurynnis Jordan & Seale, 1905
