Very special thanks for the first photo of Antennatus strigatus to Dr. Ross Robertson,
Remark: Please d´ont mistake Antennatus strigatus (Gill, 1863) with Antennarius striatus (Shaw, 1794)!
This frogfish is usually found in small recesses on rocky reefs and especially along walls. It blends almost perfectly with the background, they often take the markings of tube-worm snails or appear to be encrusting sponges.
