February 28, 2009|Times Staff and Wire Reports

A psychedelic fish that bounces on the ocean floor like a rubber ball has been classified as a new species. The frogfish was discovered by scuba diving instructors a year ago off Ambon island in eastern Indonesia. The new species is described in this month's edition of Copeia, the journal of the American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists.
