''Rhinopias eschmeyeri'' is a Scorpionfish from the Indo-West Pacific. It grows to a size of 16.6 cm in length. Common names in English are Eschmeyer's scorpionfish and Paddle-flap scorpionfish. It occasionally makes its way into the aquarium trade. Although some have raised questions as to whether R. eschmeyeri is a morphological variant of Rhinopias frondosa rather than a separate species, a 2006 study by Motomura and Johnson confirmed the species' existence and distinguished it from other members.. more
