The leafy sea dragon or Glauerts Seadragon, Phycodurus eques, is a marine fish in the family Syngnathide, which also includes seahorses. Its name is derived from the long leaf-like protrusions that extend from its body. These protrusions mimic seaweed and serve as camouflage for the fish. Specimen collected at Point Lonsdale (back beach) Victoria.
