Caption: Ghost pipefish (Solenostomus cyanopterus). X-ray of a section through ghost pipefish, showing their long snouts (left) and the bony body rings that are used to differentiate one species of pipefish from another. Pipefish (family Syngnathinae) look like unfurled seahorses, which they are closely related to. The ghost pipefish has a small mouth and elongate body like other pipefish and seahorses, but it differs in its delicate trailing fins. These specimens measure 7.5 centimetres in length.
