Info

This highly venomous rockfish is native to the New Ireland Province, located between New Britain and Bougainville Island west of Papua New Guinea, and was first described in 2019.

Synanceia alula lives in prime camouflage in protected offshore reefs and estuaries, where it patiently waits for its prey.
Divers and snorkelers should avoid getting too close to stonefish and use macro lenses for underwater photography.

Stonefish have spines on their backs that have two venom glands, these spines are for defense only.
Prey that approach the rockfish, which is not initially recognized as a predator, cannot escape the powerful suction created when the rockfish's mouth opens and are sucked in at lightning speed,
