Antennarius randalli Allen, 1970

This species has a more laterally compressed body than most other frogfish, giving it a narrower head-on view. Another characteristic are three white spots that make up the corners of a triangle: one behind the eye, another just above the base of the pectoral fin and a third just below the dorsal fin. There are a couple more white spots on the upper and lower portions of the tail. Our single specimen was observed at night on the seaward reef at a depth of about 15m.
