A 'strange' mystery fish (left) found washed up on D'urville Island in New Zealand on November 01, 2013 was identified as a spotted fanfish (Pteraclis velifera) or diamond tooth whistler, found in the Indian and western Pacific Oceans from South Africa to New Zealand at depths to 500 metres (1,600 feet) and reaching a length of 50 centimetres (20 inches).
Right: Pacific fanfish (Pteraclis aesticola) caught 3 km north of Point Macquarie, New South Wales, Australia (or, from an alternate source, "washed up at Coff's Harbour, NSW").
