The new goby, Eviota bilunula, is only known from Fiji. Specimens were collected at 13.5 m depth.  The redescribed Eviota flebilis is only known from Amami-oshima Island, Kerama Islands and Iriomote-jima, in the Ryukyu Islands of Japan.  The two gobies are described in the Journal of the Ocean Science Foundation.

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.
