Hong Kong Butterflyfish; Chaetodon wiebeli

This attractive fish can easily be found when snorkelling and diving at most Koh Phangan dive sites.

Thank you to Joseph for putting us right on the name (see the comments section below) – for too many years everyone here at the dive centre was calling this a Raccoon Faced Butterfly fish.

The short video is of a couple pottering around at Anthong Marine Park.
