SynopsisThe telmatherinid fishes of the Malili Lakes, Sulawesi, Indonesia provide a new and promising system for studying the processes maintaining diversity in nature, and especially for testing the generality of the influential findings emerging from studies of other fish systems. Here we develop the telmatherinid system by providing the first detailed descriptions of mating behaviour for seven species representing both of the major Malili lakes and all three genera. The mating behaviour of… Expand
