The Australian Museum has a website with several photos and a good description and some close-ups of the lure, esca and caruncles. Search by Latin name.

Some really interesting black-and-white photos and illustrations I have found on Tierlexikon, a German page.

I identified all frogfishes (anglerfishes) to my best knowledge. Frogfishes are specially difficult to identify (see tips for identification) so mistakes are possible of course! Please write to me, if you have any questions. Latin names according to the newest scientific findings, ITIS Standard Report and Fishbase.

Ich habe alle Anglerfische nach meinen besten Kenntnissen identifiziert. Anglerfische sind jedoch speziell schwierig zu identifizieren (siehe Tipps zur Identifikation), Fehler sind deshalb natürlich möglich! Bitte schreibe mir, falls Du Fragen hast.
