|When did you see it?||Species guess||Current ID|
Only seahorse I have ever seen at Cook Island.
Also, Hippocampus cf tristis is not a species. It is actually Hippocampus kelloggi based on genetics and taxonomy. See paper I refered to above.
Thanks @nigelmarsh. Before we knock the ID back to Hippocampus" or "Hippocampus tristis" (with a note that it's a "cf"), let's wait to hear what humuhumufish has to say. 🙂
I emailed Rudie Kuiter about his species yesterday and he things it is Hippocampus cf. tristis.
