Info

Enneapterygius qirmiz was discovered in 2012 in parts of the Red Sea on rocky reefs, often on vertical walls on the seaward side of reefs.
Those who read the first description will be surprised to learn that during the field study for the first description only males could be observed, such a pretty and colourful male Dr. Sergej Bogorodsky got in front of the camera, we thank him very much for his photo.

Briefly on naming this pointed blenny: the species name 'qirmiz' stands for the Arabic word for "deep red" or "crimson" and is given for the colour of the species.

Male:
The body of the male is translucent reddish, the first dorsal fin shows a large rectangular dark spot which appears signal-like when males flag.

Females:
The colour of living females is still unknown, probably also crimson, but without the patch of melanophores on the side and without a conspicuously coloured first dorsal fin.

Imports or reports on successful husbandry are missing.
