Mandarin dragonet (Synchiropus splendidus)
The mandarin dragonette, along with the closely related psychedelic mandarinfish, are the only animal species known to have blue colouring because of cellular pigment.The name “cyanophore” was proposed for the blue chromatophores, or pigment-containing and light-reflecting cells. In all other known cases, the colour blue comes from thin-film interference from piles of flat, thin and reflecting purine crystals.
