it is common for both of those species to be among caplin.. I have posted several sightings of Sandlance this year. They are quite numerous here in the Petley area. Petley was called "upper Lance Cove" until about 1915.

All 4 Lance coves on Random Island are supposed to be named after the Sandlance.
