Do you have photos to add to this collection?

Please write to

and give me your www.address where I can download the photos or send them as an attachment. I give credits, link the photo to your homepage and add a text (or you write something), if it is known where the photo was taken. These pages are non-commercial, no adverts added.

In addition I'm interested in photos that show special behavior of frogfish (luring, catching, swallowing, spawning, camouflage) and of course of frogfish-species (see list below) I have only a few or no photos yet....

Wanted

This is the only frogfish species I have no photo yet
Nudiantennarius subteres
Das ist die einzige Anglerfisch-Art, von der ich noch kein Foto habe

Of these species I only have pictures of preserved animals - has anybody a picture of the living frogfish?
Antennatus analis / Antennatus duescus / Antennatus flagellatus / Fowlerichthys senegalensis / Histiophryne maggiewalker / Lophiocharon hutchinsi / Tathicarpus butleri
Von diesen Anglerfischen habe ich nur Fotos von konservierten Exemplaren - Fotos von lebendigen Anglerfischen sind willkommen!

All species - Alle Arten

Hast Du Fotos, die ich dieser Sammlung beifügen könnte?

Bitte schreibe an:

Diese E-mail Adresse ist mit Javascript geschützt. Bitte Javascript zulassen.

und gibt mir die Webadresse, wo ich die Bilder hinunterladen kann oder schicke die Fotos als Anhang. Selbstverständlich schreibe ich jeweils das Copyright dazu und linke das Fotos zu Deiner Webseite. Ausserdem schreibe ich meist einen kleinen Text (oder Du schreibst etwas dazu). Meine Webseite ist nicht kommerziell, also keine Werbung.

Besonders interessiert bin ich an Anglerfisch-Arten, von den ich noch keine oder wenige Fotos habe (siehe Liste oben). Und natürlich Fotos von besonderem Verhalten wie angeln, schlucken, tarnen, Fortpflanzung.

I identified all frogfishes (anglerfishes) to my best knowledge. Frogfishes are specially difficult to identify (see tips for identification) so mistakes are possible of course! Please write to me, if you have any questions. Latin names according to the newest scientific findings, ITIS Standard Report and Fishbase.

Ich habe alle Anglerfische nach meinen besten Kenntnissen identifiziert. Anglerfische sind jedoch speziell schwierig zu identifizieren (siehe Tipps zur Identifikation), Fehler sind deshalb natürlich möglich! Bitte schreibe mir, falls Du Fragen hast. Lateinische Bezeichnungen nach den neusten wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnissen, ITIS Standard Report und Fishbase.
