not to derail but the identification of this fish seems to be all over the board, has anyone else noticed this? I've been snorkeling & diving in Hawaii many times so I've seen plenty of the actual "Humu humu nuku nuku apua a" in the wild and while my memory might be foggy, it seems that there is kind of a universal identification between the actual Humu Humu, Humu Trigger, Humu rectangle trigger, Lagoon Trigger, Reef Trigger, etc...you can google all day long and you'll get page after page identifying the fish with 4 different pictures saying it's the same thing, and other pages saying each one is different! No criticism here just that this one "triggers" my OCD
EDIT also Picasso Trigger OW MY OCD
Yeah, I agree it gets wonky.. I've always known it and hear others call it a humu humu. I've also seen it as a humu picasso.
I was actually trying to pin the name on this one down. Here's what wiki says about a humu humu... it actually refers to two different triggers.
Humuhumu nukunuku apua'a - Wikipedia
If you click either of the two links to the different triggers you get an AKA ..., ..., ..., ...
EDIT: Just realized I originally used the wrong photo. Photo updated, name will come when I remember.
