Anarchias leucurus is a moray eel found in the Pacific Ocean.[1] It was first named by Snyder in 1904 as Uropterygius leucurus,[1] and is commonly known as the Snyder's moray, fine-spotted moray, or the finespot moray.[2] It is thought to be the smallest species of moray, and may actually represent several different species or subspecies.[3]
