Psychedelica Is a Trippy, Bouncy New Species

That's one stunning face on this new species spotted last year off the coast of an island of Indonesia. The "psychedelica" belongs to the frogfish family but has a unique look all its own, covered with swirling white and blue concentric stripes on a peach background. Divers off the coast of Ambon island described it as moving away from them in a series of short hops, like "an inflated rubber ball bouncing along the bottom." After no one was able to identify the aqua-eyed species, pictures were sent to a frogfish expert at the University of Washington who matched it to a mislabeled species first discovered 20 years ago. I wonder if this fish will make it to this year's Top 10 New Species list – but here's to hoping!
