any ideas on the microfly in the back?
Looks the same as the one on the left... (just smaller...)
Where did you catch them?
Left one is Chaetodon Lunula ( Racoon Butterfly)
And the right is a tiny as hell Chaetodon Auriga (thread fin butterfly)
These are the most abundant of the Butterfly specials found in our intertidal areas
Remember they eat inverts and corals
I caught them at Cape Agulhas. I'm pretty sure the small one is an auriga but just want a second opinion.
the small "auriga" is turning into a vaggie
btw the only abundant bfly down here is C. marleyii, anything else is rare.
