Naso lituratus

(Forster, 1801)

Ex Liao at 70ft. 18cm long, balicasag

Lee Goldman orangespine unicornfish (Naso lituratus). I know this is an example of shameless promotion :-), but check out my book: Snorkeler's Guide to Marine Life of the Philippines. It has all these guys in there...and its not just for snorkelers :-)!

Ex Liao haha its ok Lee Goldman it keeps us informed, thanks again for the i.d. i thought it was a flagtail..

Franca Wermuth-Vezzoli Hi Lee, it would be great if this book was available as e-book (because I don't want to carry books when travelling)

Lee Goldman We're working on it :-)! When I first thought about doing it, I really did think I would do something strictly as an e-book. But then I realized that a great value in this book comes from having it onsite as a good and quick reference. It's not very big nor heavy. 8.5" x 6" x 0.5" and about a 0.5 kilos. 282pp.

Ernst Andres No we do not want now. We are hungry !!!
