Ghost Pipefishes: A Classification Riddle

Ornate Ghost Pipefish
Ornate Ghost Pipefish (Solenostomus paradoxus)

The ghost pipefish are a group of reef dwellers that seem to have a universal appeal with underwater naturalists. Highly sought by underwater photographers, they are limited in distribution to the Indo-west Pacific.

This CoralRealm feature article examines the ghost pipefish family in great detail, including the described and undescribed species that comprise this interesting group. The article includes a ghost pipefish photo gallery with links to complete descriptions and a larger photograph of each species. You will not find a resource like it any where else on the web or in the literature! There is also a companion article on ghost pipefish reproduction.
