New lionfish species
The list of new species found in Gorontalo continues to grow! Miguel’s Diving staff have noticed a particular kind of lionfish over the past several years that has a different appearance from the other ones. We have now confirmed it is the newPterois andover, named in 2008. Its dorsal fins are noticeably taller than other lionfishes’ and it has 13 pectoral spins not 14. Its pectoral fins are very feather-like. Also the white body bands are much wider and it only has a few black spots on its tail and anal fins. It is quite beautiful when it spreads its fins to sail over the substrate! Previous publications noted its presence in central Sulawesi only.
