Taxon Notes:After Short et al (2019) demonstrated through molecular and morphological evidence that Hippocampus procerus was a synonym of Hippocampus whitei, the distribution of H. whitei needed re-assessment. It is historically confirmed from north of Mackay, QLD (20º06'S) southwards to Wollongong (34º31´S) (Australian Faunal Directory online, accessed 3.4.2020), but its current distribution is recorded as Hervey Bay region, Qld (c. 24 55 S) southwards to St Georges Basin, NSW (c. 35 05, 150 35) in depths to 12m.
