Nettorhamphos radula, new genus and species, is described from two specimens, 20.3–40.2 mm SL, trawled from sponge and algae reefs between 30–40 meters in depth offshore from Fremantle, Western Australia. The new taxon is distinguished from all other members of the Gobiesocidae by having vast fields of tiny conical teeth throughout the oral jaws that are arranged in multiple, regular rows along the lingual surface of the premaxilla and the dentary. The new taxon is tentatively considered a…

Molecular Phylogenetics of the Clingfishes (Teleostei: Gobiesocidae)—Implications for Classification
The phylogenetic relationships among members of the family Gobiesocidae are investigated using both mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequence data to assess whether the alternative classification schemes are compatible with inferred evolutionary relationships.
