David Muirhead Histiogamphelus genus has just the two known species.This is probably H.briggsi(Briggs crested pipefish).Both species (the other is the Rhino pipefish ) are very common in south Australia but distributions overlap with Briggs extending from the east and rhinos from the west.Both species get quite long by pipefish standards and both mimic dead drift sea grass blades so are very cryptic in their usual inshore habitat where they roll and tumble along among sea grass detritus on mainly sandy substrates feeding on mysids mainly.

David Muirhead ...and,sthn Fleurieu Peninsula (eg this is a Lady Bay image in about 0.5m depth,and believe me,the scenery keeps getting better and better even between this depth and out to about 3-5m.But @ some locations,especially Lady Bay,it's a long swim out to even 3m depth so boats are best for non Olympians who want to use SCUBA @ Lady Bay.
David Muirhead ...continued from above...sthn FP on a good day virtually epitomises all that is implied by the term 'The Unique South',so there!
