Syngnathus acus

Linnaeus, 1758


Janez Kranjc Syngnathus acus, Night Dive, Jaz Beach, Montenegro Nikon D7000, Nikkor 105mm, Inon Z240 x2

João Pedro Silva Don't think this is Syngnathus acus. There are other pipefish in the area.

Andy Horton 4 June 2012 A rockpooling visit to Worthing Pier on a low (0.4 metres) spring tide produced a surprise Brittlestar as well as some infrequent summer occurences like two large Velvet Swimming Crabs, Necora puber, a handful of small Common Hermit Crabs, Pagurus bernhardus, in winkle shells, a single Common Starfish Asterias rubens, one Dahlia Anemone, Urticina felina, one small Long-legged Spider Crab Macropodia rostrata, and one sub-adult 5-Bearded Rockling, Ciliata mustela. A Greater Pipefish, Syngnathus acus, was rescued from the beak of a Herring Gull. Daisy Anemones, Cereus pedunculatus, were frequently found in chocolate brown hues. Snakelocks Anemones, Anemonia viridis, were common as usual with frequent Beadlet Anemones Actinia equina.

David Hill David Hill Andy - went on a Bioblitz on Saturday at Cemlyn Bay (north coast of Anglesey) and today rockpooling at Llanddulas (north Wales coast) - lots of interesting new finds (for me anyway, fairly new to marine life). Cemlyn included Eel, 5-Bearded Rockling, Butterfish, Lobster and Great Scallop - a few pics here www.flickr.com/photos/natureseye/sets/72157630042354134/ and list of species here http://www.cofnod.org.uk/BioBlitz?ID=6 At Llanddullas this afternoon lots of Sea Gooseberries and a few Pipefish, pics to follow.

Andy Horton The Greater Pipefish did not look injured when collected, but I do not think it will survive. The gulls catch these pipefish occasionally and drop them in gardens.

Joe Bater that would have been a great UW macro photography day!

Andy Horton Not so good on the photography front. Pier causes shadows and low light. Capture and return. I hope to get a few shots later. I was terrestrial and the critters were under rocks. More though. The young rockpoolers (8 yo) are well informed now.
