Bhanotia pauciradiata (few-rayed pipefish) is a little known marine fish of the family Syngnathidae. This species is only known from a single specimen, which was found on a reef slope near Indonesia, at a depth of around 10–12 m.[1] The specimen was 3.2 centimetres (1.3 in) long. This species is ovoviviparous, with the male carrying eggs in its brood pouch until giving birth to live young.[2]
