Paragobiodon echinocephalus is one of several dwarf gobies that live their entire lives within the branches of SPS corals. P. echinocephalus lives exclusively within Stylophora spp., thus earning its common name the Redhead Stylophora Goby. They’re often found in small groups and form monogamous pairs, like the two photographed by Ned.
Ned and Anna DeLoach of www.blennywatcher.com are out diving in the Indo-Pacific right now and should be back soon with a bunch of amazing photos, stories, and possibly new species to share! We can’t wait!
