Muraenidae Rafinesque, 1815

The photos were taken by Silvia Steffen and Jörn Stahn at a night dive in Indonesia and show probably an unidentified moray eel from Halmahera.Many thanks for the photos.

This moray eel from Indonesia is still unidentified.

Smithsonian Institution
Museum Support Center:

"It looks like a member of the Gymnothorax reticularis group, but it doesn't quite match any of the known species. The only moray with a posterior nostril that long is Enchelycore pardalis, which is quite different in head shape and color pattern. It is undoubtedly something new."

FishBase 06.05.2016 " According to Dr David Smith of the Smithsonian Institution, 'this is almost certainly an undescribed species."
