Newly discovered species


Psychedelic frogfish

Discovered in a popular diving site off Ambon Island, Indonesia, in January 2008, and first described as a new species in 2009, the psychedelic frog fish has not been seen since June 2008.

The psychedelic frogfish is the only known fish to ‘hop’ rather than swim, pushing off the sea floor using its leg-like fins and expelling water from its gills to propel itself forwards.
