Caption: This is the Short Lure Netdevil, Photocorynus spiniceps. This individual was captured in a trawl between 1200 and 1500 meters depth in the Gulf of Mexico, 2007. The deep sea anglerfishes are predatory, luring their prey with a bioluminescent bulb (an esca) at the end of a long rod (an illicium), which is a modified fin ray. Impressive teeth are used to impale and hold any prey item that moves in to investigate the glowing lure. Image courtesy of the DEEPEND project.
