Can anyone I'd this one please? (Painted Sweetlip)



62cm, caught in 20+ metres, off Moreton Island in QLD, Paternoster rig.  Don't think it is a tarwhine as it would be maxed out for the species. Bronzy colour, slightly darker bars on top section of back, light splotches elsewhere per pic...

Looks like a Blubber Lip Morwong, or "mother in law fish" not known for its eating qualities, very common catch around that area. Not to be confused with the "Rubber Lip" or Blue Morwong we get further south, completely different species.
