I need an ID on this fish figure!

Any guesses?

Very nice figure! To me, it looks like a Rockfish, but I'm not entirely sure. I don't know the brand or any official information on it. This is still an excellent find regardless of what it is.

It looks like a sunfish in shape, something like a crappie or a warmouth, but I've never seen anything with that color pattern. Perhaps a fish that looks like this exists, but if so I don't know it.

There are clownfish with roughly that kind of colouring, but that's not a clownfish body.

The body is kind of 'generic perch-like fish' that I'm sure I've seen many times in different paint schemes, but never nailed down to species.

I think I’ve nailed it on the head guys. Juvenile harlequin sweetlips, but wrong coloring.

Looking now, I think you are right about the sculpt. But I still maintain the paint is a clownfish.

You know what I think? I think it is simply a male Phasianus Colchicus, a Common Pheasant. Look at the crest at the back of its head and the long central tail feathers with the short tail feathers on each side of them.

I have been stumped for a while on this butterfly. It is a largish figure (9.0 cm wingspan). I bought it at a gift shop in a state park in Georgia years ago. Given its size, one would assume it is modeled after something specific. Two possibilities are Caligo uranus or Thauria aliris, but for both of those the white on the forewing should be a band, not a cloudy spot (and in the former, the forewings are usually more blue, but they can fade to brownish-black in old specimens).

@BowheadWhale do you recognize it?

Why not an Eurytides ariarathes ?

and following that lead has resulted in some other options: Eurytides branchus and Biblis hyperia.

Indeed, especially Eurytides branchus could be the winner
