Fig. 61. Photographs of a large metamorphosing leptocephalus with an apparent greenish coloration that was observed moving slowly over the bottom in a coarse sand and coral clump area near Sangeang Island in the Flores Sea of southern Indonesia. This leptocephalus appeared to be larger than 400 mm, and was likely a never-before collected species of the Muraenidae. Reprinted with permission from Miller MJ, Powell J, Tsukamoto K. Observation of a large metamorphosing leptocephalus in a coral reef habitat at Sangeang Island, Indonesia. Zool. Stud. 2009b; 48: 107.
