Hong Kong Butterflyfish; Chaetodon wiebeli

The Hong Kong Butterflyfish, Chaetodon wiebeli is a particularly attractive reef fish. They can easily be found when snorkelling and diving at most of the dive sites around Koh Phangan.

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.
