                      rosaceus - Antennarius 
                      rosaceus (Rosy frogfish, Spiny-tufted Frogfish - Rosa Anglerfisch)

Illicium and Esca:
Illicium (rod) distinctly longer than 2nd spine. Esca (lure, bait) elongate with long filaments.
Additional Characteristics:
Typical is that the second spine is very long and slender with small clusters. Dorsal spot encircled with yellow ring.
More Information:
Antennatus rosaceus (formerly Antennarius rosaceus) or Spiny-tufted Frogfish belongs to the genus Antennatus. Link to fishbase / Pietsch & Grobecker p.170 / new nomenclature Arnold, Pietsch 2012
Can be confused with:
If a frogfish is pink it is often identified as Antennatus rosaceus (formerly Antennarius rosaceus) , even in books. Be extra careful if you can make out the long second spine with the small clusters and the dorsal spot!

Illicium und Esca:
Illicium (Angel, Rute) merklich länger als zweiter Flossenstrahl. Lange Filamente als Esca (Köder).
Weitere Merkmale:
Typisch ist, dass der zweiter Flossenstrahl sehr lang und schmal ist und mit kleinen Büscheln verziert ist. Rückenfleck mit gelbem Ring umrahmt.
Zusatzinformationen:
Antennatus rosaceus (vorher Antennarius rosaceus) oder Rosa Anglerfisch gehört zur Gattung Antennatus. Link zu fishbase / Pietsch & Grobecker S.170 / Neue Nomenklatur Arnold, Pietsch 2012
Wird verwechselt mit:
Alle rosa farbene Anglerfische werden gerne als Antennatus rosaceus (vorher Antennarius rosaceus) bezeichnet, auch zum Teil in Büchern. Man muss auf den zweiten Flossenstrahl mit den Büscheln achten, dieser zeichnet diese Art aus!
