AvatarBy Leonard Ho 5 years agoNo Comments

 

All five of the new dwarfgoby species are positively known from Fiji. The novel species described in the latest publication of Journal of the Ocean Science Foundation are:

  • Eviota eyreae
  • Eviota mimica
  • Eviota richardi
  • Eviota teresae
  • Eviota thamani

The paper is open access and includes a review of the entire Eviotaa dwarfgobies, a genus that contains numerous gobies that pack a lot of color into their tiny bodies.

Unfortunately, no decent live or preserved photos of E.mimica and E.thamani currently exists.

    I'm a passionate aquarist of over 30 years, a coral reef lover, and the blog editor for Advanced Aquarist. While aquarium gadgets interest me, it's really livestock (especially fish), artistry of aquariums, and "method behind the madness" processes that captivate my attention.
