The Leftvent - Linophryne lucifer
Leftvents are deep-sea anglerfish, who have the symbiotic bacteria and obligate parasitic males common to many of the other anglerfish.
The genus name Linophryne is Greek, and means “toad that fishes with a net”, and lucifer means, well, "Lucifer". It’s a devil-toad-fish with a net. The whole genus is sometimes called “netdevils”. They’re uncommon enough thatbasically the entire genus is known by that common name.
