Southern record for the Yellowmouth Moray

Ian Shaw's beautiful photo of a Yellowmouth Moray, Gymnothorax nudivomer, shows a fish well south of its recognised range. Thank you Ian!
The Yellowmouth Moray was previously known south to the Capricorn Group, southern Queensland. Ian's observation has extended the distribution by around 700km.
Thank you also to Matthew Lockett, whose comment alerted us to this range extension. Matt is currently working on the Australian Faunal Directory.
