罗伯特·惠顿（Robert Whitton）是一位著名的水下摄影师和博物学家，目前正在夏威夷主教博物馆（Bishop Museum）的一项研究工作，目前在夏威夷主教博物馆中工作。罗伯特（Robert）经营着一个名为Explorer's Log的博客，他在其中记录并在他的众多生物多样性调查中发布了有趣的发现。罗伯特（Robert）与兰迪·科萨基（Randy Kosaki）和布莱恩·哈克（Brian HaukChromisstruhsakeri.
Chromisstruhsakeriis a real deep water legend from Hawaii that has eluded many, even experienced deepwater divers. Like奥丹西亚斯伊丽莎白, this fish is extremely seldom seen and only until now has it had its live photograph taken. As a rare fish geek,Chromisstruhsakerihas always been one of the fishes on my list of things to see, and I have always secretly wished it appeared in Rufus Kimura’s deepwater Hawaiian catches. Alas, it has finally made its debut appearance on film thanks to Robert Whitton, Randy Kosaki and Brian Hauk.
The group of deepwater divers stumbled upon this rare find at 200 feet in Midway Atoll, and were the first to photograph this species alive.Chromisstruhsakeriwas seen again the following day at 280 feet. Midway Atoll is a well known rare fish mecca, and it is whereGenicanthus personatus可以在夏威夷大陆的浅色深度上看到。但是，即使在中途有深水鱼在较浅的深处，Chromisstruhsakeristill prefers calling a hautingly deep 300 feet mesophotic reef its home. This would mean that in mainland Hawaii, the fish is found at far greater depths.

That is exactly what Richard Pyle commented with regards to this fish in the Bishop Museum blog post. He has seen this fish through an underwater submersible at 500 ft in mainland Hawaii, where it is common. Bone crushing soul sucking depths of 500 ft, is where this littleChromisfrequents. Talk about deep. Richard has also seen this fish a day after Randy, Robert and Brian at Pearl and Hermes.Chromisstruhsakerimay not seem like much, but what Richard Pyle mentioned in his blog post is a clear resonating sound for fish geeks everywhere. He says, ‘I suppose only a true fish nerd can appreciate how excited we are all about this encounter; but trust me, this is the stuff of high adventure for weirdos like us!’ We couldn’t agree more sir!
理查德（RichardBodianus bathycarpos.B. Bathycarpos是Pigfish综合体的成员Bodianus, which includesB. rubrisos和B. oxycephalus. However unlike the latter two,B. Bathycarpos以前从未被活着拍摄过，这些可能是该物种可用的一些图像。雌性是白色的，从眼睛到库杜尔花梗，并在背侧侧面添加破折号。终端男性像上面的男性一样，非常不同。有关Richard在Pearl和Hermes深入潜水的更多图片和信息，您可能需要查看Bishop Museum blog.
