John Moore politely pointed out that I had mis-identified the picture of the scorpionfish that I posted on Sunday. It isn't a "California scorpionfish" but a "rainbow scorpionfish" (Scorpaenodes xyris).
I thought the fish looked "different" when I took the picture, but the xyris is listed as uncommon to rare in Southern California and it does look a lot like the California scorpion.
