Scientists of Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego and the Western Australia Museum (WAM) discovered a new seadragon, named the Rubby Seadragons (Phyllopteryx dewysea). Seadragon is different because of the arrangement of DNA, bones, and its red color.

The color of the specimen was a bright shade of red and vastly different from the orange tint in Leafy Seadragons (Phycodurus eques) and the yellow and purple hues of Common Seadragons (Phyllopteryx taeniolatus).
