This very rare species belongs like other pipefish to the family Syngnathidae. Bruce’s pughead pipefish (Bulbonaricus brucei) are found in the Western Indian Ocean and Pacific Ocean. Bruce’s pughead pipefish can be seen when diving in Romblon with our experienced spotters and does not grow bigger than 4.5 cm. It can be recognized by the white triangle of the head and a spotless body (in comparison to Bulbonaricus brauni).
We love macro and super macro photography and especially finding rare and special critters around
our island home. We do our best in identifying all critters on this website correctly; however, we
might make mistakes that can be present on this website.
Please keep in mind that this website is created for scuba divers, underwater photographers, and
everybody interested in marine animals. This website is created and organized from a diver’s and an
underwater photographer’s point of view. That’s why we primarily group animals together in a
meaningful way for divers and underwater photographers.
