This species looks really similar to the images on the Australian Museum site for Enneapterygius atrogulare. It appears that Vauclusella annulata is the synonym for Enneapterygius atrogulare.

  • Notes:
    This little beauty hopped about for several minutes, so I managed to get some clear shots. Jenny Edwards suggests an alternative ID is: Eastern white-barred three fin Vauclusella annulata(from Hutchins & Swainston), but we have this one on our list, called a Black-cheek threefin by Kuiter, but with the same latin name. I'm interested to know if anyone else from this area has any comments?
