Apodichthys flavidus –penpoint gunnel

June 8, 2013: Charlie Carpenter my neighbour arrived from next door with a bucket with a 15cm. gunnel and cling-fish he had found down on the rocky intertidal at the mid-north section of Taylor Beach. We took this photo for the species list before returning it.
