Researchers with the California Academy of Sciences and Hawaii’s Bishop Museum have described five new goby species of the genus Eviota that have recently been discovered in Fijian waters.
The dwarfgobies include:
• Eviota eyreae
• Eviota mimica
• Eviota richardi
• Eviota teresae
• Eviota thamani
The fish collections are with the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco, Calif.
The description of each of the five species, along with all dwarfgobies in the Eviota genus can be read in the paper “A review of the dwarfgobies of Fiji, including descriptions of five new species (Teleostei: Gobiidae: Eviota)” on the Journal of the Ocean Science Foundation website.
