Histiophryne psychedelica is a highly atypical frogfish first described in 2009 from a handful of specimens photographed in Ambon, Indonesia, in 2008. It has a vestigial, non-functional lure and probably traps its prey inside coral holes and crevices or within coral rubble. The unusual pattern is thought to mimic the appearance of several kinds of hermatypic coral, and while varying slightly from individual to individual, appears to remain unchanged throughout the life of each individual.David Hall
