Description

Found this in Pataua estuary in half a meter of water an hour or so before high tide. It was initially half buried in sand until disturbed. Initially thought it could be a juvenile Allomycterus pilatus. But it does look visually similar to Torquigener altipinnis which is apparently not known from mainland NZ. Happy to say I have no idea.

@clinton think this one's for you?
