Blue-spotted klipvis, Pavoclinus caeruleopunctatus Zsilavecz, 2001. Taken at Castle Rock dive site in False Bay.
Guido Zsilavecz noticed that the
blue-spotted specimens of the peacock klipfish, Pavoclinus pavo
differed from the true pavo (with green lines on the cheek) in having
a notch in the dorsal-fin margin between 3rd and 4th spines and a blunter
dorsal head profile (P. pavo have a more pointed snout).
Not only is Guido a good photographer, but he is also an excellent “fish observer”.
