This is an old observation, from 30.08.12; however, I thought it might be valuable for a range extension and the lack of data on H. alatus.
Great! @richis2000 Thanks for adding your old observation of this poorly known species. Although it is not currently considered a valid species (H. alatus was tentatively synonymized with H. spinosissimus in the latest taxonomic revision by Lourie et al. 2016) more data may help to regain its species status, as seahorse taxonomy is always changing as new information becomes available!
