Abstract Flexorincus, new genus and species, is described from 15 specimens (14.0–27.2 mm SL) collected from shallow (0–9 meters) intertidal and sub-tidal waters of the Rangitāhua Kermadec Islands, New Zealand. The new taxon is distinguished from all other members of the Gobiesocidae by a combination of characters, including a heterodont dentition comprising both conical and distinct incisiviform teeth that are laterally compressed with a strongly recurved cusp, an oval-shaped opening between… 
A new genus and two new species of miniature clingfishes from temperate southern Australia (Teleostei, Gobiesocidae)
Abstract A new genus and two new species of miniature clingfishes are described based on specimens collected from dense stands of macroalgae in intertidal and shallow subtidal areas along the coast
Description of a New Genus and Two New Species of Indo-Pacific Clingfishes (Gobiesocidae: Diademichthyinae) with Redescription and Reassignment of Two Species Previously Assigned to Lepadichthys Waite, 1904
TLDR
A new genus and two new species of Indo-Pacific clingfishes are described in this study and two additional species previously assigned to Lepadichthys are transferred to Flabellicauda, new genus, including F. alleni, newspecies, and F. cometes, new species.
Erdmannichthys, a new genus of Gobiesocidae (Teleostei: Gobiesociformes), and notes on the rare clingfish E. alorensis (Allen & Erdmann, 2012), new combination
Erdmannichthys, a new genus of the family Gobiesocidae, is introduced to include a species previously assigned to Aspasmichthys. This act is supported by morphological characters and the results of a

TLDR
A species commonly regarded as Aspasma minima is described as the new species AsPasma ubauo sp.
Morphological and genetic divergence supports peripheral endemism and a recent evolutionary history of Chrysiptera demoiselles in the subtropical South Pacific
TLDR
This study reconciles a formerly perplexing and disjunct distribution for C. rapanui, an endemic of Rapa Nui, to reveal that the Chrysiptera of French Polynesia, Rangitāhua, and the South-western Pacific have only a very recent history of divergence.
Molecular Phylogenetics of the Clingfishes (Teleostei: Gobiesocidae)—Implications for Classification
TLDR
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.
Redescription of Lepadichthys coccinotaenia Regan 1921 and description of Lepadichthys trishula sp. nov. from southern Japan (Gobiesocidae: Diademichthyinae)
Lepadichthys coccinotaenia Regan 1921 (Gobiesocidae: Diademichthyinae) is redescribed on the basis of 60 specimens, including the holotype, and a new species of Lepadichthys, previously misidentified
Gouania willdenowi is a teleost fish without immunoglobulin genes
TLDR
It is found that the species Gouania willdenowi does not possess any such regions, neither for the heavy chain nor for the light chains, and the genes that code for CD79a and CD79b protein molecules have also been deleted.
