別誤會， 2009-11-5 這主題的"所需閱讀權限"是很高的，你應該還未知有這魚的記錄。
I never claim knowledge of this fish in HK and I only learn from what has been made available to me. Actually I am concerning with the macro-distribution of fishes, and sicydiines are only a small part of this, in the Oriental Region. I never quoted anything beyond what has been published and available and I gave due credit. This the way science is doing.
The centre of distribution of all sicydiines is tropical S.E. Pacific, indeed why I refer this to Japanese fish watchers is because they already know much better about ths group fish, not only this species but the whole clade, not only in taxonomy but also ecology, behaviour and breeding physiology.
As I have mentioned to honkongensis, if any fish hunter is good enough, whether the information is available will make no difference to their collection, if they want to. I also mentioned that by making legislation may contribute to the "rarity effect". And that one should worry more for local hunters as the Japanese can get these fishes much more easily in Okinawa islands.
The actual area needing priority study of these fishes are actually NOT the adult phase which you guys so priced. It is the pelagic phase in the open ocean, and the location is not S.China for that matter.
One must grow out of the "stamp collector" stage in their natural history if they want to really understand the right way of doing science.
