aquarium specimen, not recorded
This species is commonly known as the spotted seahorse, yellow seahorse, or estuary seahorse. It is characteristically smoother in appearance than most other species, of medium size, 7-17 cm (2.7-6.7 inches). Shown here is a female, identifiable by its lack of a large brood pouch for harboring the young.
