Frogfishes of the genus Histiophryne protect their eggs (about 120) in a brood pouch, which is formed by the pectoral and dorsal fins and the folded tail. Females of the genus Lophiocharon attach the eggs (about 650) with a thread-like extension to the skin surface on the side of their body and protect them by folding the tail fin. Some South Australian species produce numerous egg strings forming a mass containing about 5,000 eggs. The egg cache is spread out on the ground and protected by the female until the young hatch.
