Named for Black Panther’s mythical nation of Wakanda, a dazzling new “Vibranium” Fairy Wrasse enchants with purple scales and a preference for deep, little-known mesophotic reefs up to 260 feet below the surface.
Surprise! A new species of Fairy Wrasse is described, and it’s a stunner! Meet Cirrhilabrus cyanogularis, the Blue Throat Fairy Wrasse.
The most remarkable part is that these wrasses actually glow red (and look magnificent) under actinic lighting.
The newly-described Monsoon Fairy Wrasse (Cirrhilabrus hygroxerus) will make its US debut at MACNA 2016
