Decorated Warbonnet

Chirolophis decoratus


So named for the prominent cirri on the head extending onto the long continuous dorsal fin that resemble the feathers of an Indian chieftain's warbonnet. Measuring to 15" long, this spotting was about 10".


Found in the north Pacific, this spotting was at Kelvin Grove at a depth of 90 feet on a small ledge.
