Distinguishing features

Distinguishing features still need to be specified.


  • Size data has not been obtained.



Lepidonotus cristatus has not been recorded from Lizard Island. Mike Bok suggested that id for this photo, and it was agreed as likely by Dr Pat Hutchings (Australian Museum) and Dr Robin Wilson (Museum Victoria). However, a specimen will need to be examined to be certain.
