I have decided to open a topic about AAA deep-sea fishes because I noticed many of them were missing on TAI. From top to bottom: AAA LANTERN FISH, AAA ANGLER FISH AND AAA DANGLE FISH.

Those are among the most interesting AAA figures in my opinion. I created a different page to them once they belong to a series of 9 figures called Bottom Feeders. I'll add them on TAi when possible. Thanks once more! Very Happy

Yes, it's true. I also have the Bat Fish, but I didn't photograph it, since it was already on TAI.

Yes, you did and I've red it, though, those are generic names. I was asking about their exact species. Though, don't worry too much about it. There are so few figures of that kind that they will go to a "basal" taxa page.

The first fish shown in my pics is an OPISTHOPROCTUS SOLEATUS, a Barreleye Fish. Recently, it has been discovered that a transparent water bubble actually covers the slope-shaped head of the animal.

The second fish, the Anglerfish, seems to be a BUFOCERATIAS WEDLI, considering its large pectoral flippers (all the other angler fishes I have seens have flippers too small to be what AAA represented) and its nodule-covered skin.

However, I didn't find the species of the Dangle Fish yet. I will continue searching.

There's another source, if you are willing to purchase from Aliexpress:

It's a whole set of 9, including a weird jellyfish!

Here is the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], there are 9 listed but not the jellyfish, I added species names according with Valerie and also some posts from Andre on ATF. Isn't it weird that a jellyfish looks weird among so many weird creatures? Laughing

Tank you! cheers

By the way, couldn't the Safari Toob Anglerfish be a HUMPBACK ANGLERFISH? Look at the toy: it's dark brown in color, its back is roundish, its skin is soft and its flippers are attached high, close to the back... couldn't it be it?

Why not? I moved it to the humpback anglerfish page then, if any other editor have a better approach, it can always be changed.
The other larger Safari will be hard to identify, Andre says it may be from Oneirodes genus but he is not sure. scratch

Maybe I'll open a page to dreamers (family Oneirodidae) and I put it there. These fish are quite illusive and not easy to identify, very few pictures and escriptions on the internet and some have a remarkable sexual dimorpism. scratch

Given the long dorsal fin, I would lean (from the picture) toward O. bulbosus. But then, the figure doesn't have an anal fin at all, so it's probably not very easily defined!

And as for dimorphism--we can be reasonably certain that the figure is a female, if, like many anglers, these one have obligatory parasitic males.

On the other hand, I've always thought that the overall shape and lure-morhpology was more likely Melanocetus, the sea devils.

I know they are not easy to identify. Look at my AAA Anglerfish, for example. I identified it as a Bufoceratias wedli, because of its nodule-covered skin and its large pectoral fns. But I wonder if it is not a Bufoceratias shaoi, instead, because of its lure full of "threads". However, the pectoral fins of Bufoceratias shaoi are way smaller than those of B. wedli. And B. wedli's lure does have two or three "threads", but not as many as B. shaoi. So? Is it really B. wedli AAA represented, lie I thought at first, or is it B. shaoi?
