We are having a bit of a fun species hunt and I have claimed a 5 bearded Rockling, no I.D. problem there.

I have also claimed a 3 bearded Rockling as well,but now the debate begins :) I reckon that it is a young 3 beard and an experienced mate believes its a shore Rockling.

What do you think ?

In my defence :nerd: I have had shore Rockling before and they always had dark green/brown plain flanks, dark fins and a rounder head.

Where as this had a flatter head, which is not that obvious in the photo and also orange fins and the Leopard spots, which as far as I know are uni - que to the 3 bearded variety or

Am a wrong, wrong, wrong, in which case I'm going to have to eat a lot of humble pie :cry:
