Info

Gomon, 1997

Hippocampus minotaur is a rare seahorse known from very few specimens collected relatively deep waters off south-eastern Australia.

The Bullneck Seahorse was found on the continental shelf and was trawled from fine sand or hard bottom, possibly in association with azooxanthellate gorgonian corals.

Depth: Depth range 64 - 100 meters.
