The Shortarse Feelerfish and other conundrums

Shortarse Feelerfish
Presenting the Shortarse Feelerfish: the second specimen to be found in Australia. The scientific name, bestowed in New Zealand, is Bathymicrops brevyanalis (Bathymicrops for deep small eye; breveanalis for short anus). The name probably refers to the short anal fin rays that characterise this species. It belongs to the same family as tripodfish, and like them, has small vestigial eyes.
