Info

Eviota pseudaprica
False Sunny Dwarfgoby

Winterbottom, R. & Greenfield, D.W. (2020) Eviota pseudaprica, a new dwarfgoby from the Western Pacific
Ocean (Teleostei: Gobiidae). Journal of the Ocean Science Foundation, 35, 30–40.

A new species of dwarfgoby, Eviota pseudaprica n. sp., is described from the main islands of Palau along with specimens from Raja Ampat Islands, West Papua, Indonesia. The new species has a unique cephalic sensory-canal pore pattern for the genus, with only the paired PITO and SOT pores present. One or more of the pectoral-fin rays are branched, the fifth pelvic-fin ray is long (65 to 83% of the length of the fourth pelvic ray), and the long tubular anterior nares are about half to fully black. In life, and in freshly collected specimens, the fish is lemon yellow with three red-orange bars crossing the nape.

Distribution and habitat. The new species is apparently a relatively deep-reef inhabitant in the main islands of Palau (14–50 m) and in the Raja Ampat Islands of Indonesia (45–66 m). It appears to be primarily associated with small caves in the vertical slopes of the drop-offs.
