This pygmy seahorse (Hippocampus bargibanti) species is widespread in the western central Pacific. It's tiny - no larger than 2.4 cm. Bargibanti is known to occur only on gorgonian corals of the genus Muricella, and has evolved to resemble its host. The tubercles and truncated snout of this species match the color and shape of the polyps of the host gorgonian, while its body matches the gorgonian stem. Lembeh Strait, Indonesia.
