Five new Eviota dwarfgobies from Fiji

by | Apr 8, 2016 | Advanced Aquarist | 0 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.
