Current knowledge on reproduction (nidification, spawning, larval life and sexuality, recruitment into the rivers, upstream migration and distribution in the rivers is reported on.

Elliptical Fourier analysis was used on three different amphidromous Sicyopterus species, demonstrating that otolith shape is species-specific and finding that, for S. lagocephalus, the cosmopolitan species, New Caledonian samples are close to western Vanuatu samples, the latter two being well differentiated from the eastern “central” VanUatu samples.
Characterisation of post-larval to juvenile stages, metamorphosis and recruitment of an amphidromous goby, Sicyopterus lagocephalus (Pallas) (Teleostei : Gobiidae : Sicydiinae)
Sicyopterus lagocephalus post-larvae migrating in Mascarene Archipelago rivers, La Reunion Island, provide an important food source to local populations and fishing activity has a socioeconomic…
Density-range size relationships in French riverine fishes
Only body size explains significant variation around the relationship, being negatively correlated with local density and positively correlated with range size, and two of the principal biological mechanisms already proposed are formally tested.
Revisiting the ichthyodiversity of Java and Bali through DNA barcodes: taxonomic coverage, identification accuracy, cryptic diversity and identification of exotic species
The results highlight the poor taxonomic knowledge of this Javanese ichthyofauna and the apparent discrepancy between present and historical occurrence data is to be attributed to species extirpations, synonymy and misidentifications in previous studies.
Femtosecond laser ablation ICP-MS measurement of otolith Sr:Ca and Ba:Ca composition reveal differential use of freshwater habitats for three amphidromous Sicyopterus (Teleostei: Gobioidei:…

The use of freshwater habitats was examined in three amphidromous goby species of the genus Sicyopterus using otolith microchemistry, revealing three different adult behaviours within the freshwater habitat.
Survival and behavioral characteristics of amphidromous goby larvae of Sicyopterus japonicus (Tanaka, 1909) during their downstream migration
From endemism to widespread distribution: phylogeography of three amphidromous Sicyopterus species (Teleostei: Gobioidei: Sicydiinae)
Phylogenetic reconstruction and coalescence analysis indicate that the oldest population originated in the western Pacific, from which the eastern Pacific and the Indian Oceans were colonised.
Phylogeny and biogeography of Sicydiinae (Teleostei: Gobiidae) inferred from mitochondrial and nuclear genes
A molecular dating approach helps the interpretation of these phylogenetic results in terms of amphidromy and biogeographical events that have allowed the Sicydiinae to colonise the Indo-Pacific, West African and Caribbean islands.
Ubiquity of Sicyopterus lagocephalus (Teleostei: Gobioidei) and phylogeography of the genus Sicyopterus in the Indo-Pacific area inferred from mitochondrial cytochrome b gene.
