Maxillicosta meridianus, Motomura, Last & Gomon, 2006


Maxillicosta meridianus, also known as the Southern Gurnard Perch, is endemic to south-eastern Australia. During the day it is usually buried in sandy channels, but is exposed at night.

Maxillicosta meridianus has a relatively shallow body that becomes increasingly compressed posteriorly. It has a large, slightly oblique mouth. Specimens shows at night three dark blotches or saddles on the back, a black blotch on the dorsal fin and pale brown spots on the caudal fin.
