The ultrastructures present in the scales of Glossogobius aureus were subjected to morphological analysis using a Leica ES2 stereomicroscope in tandem with an Olympus digital camera with a 12.1 megapixel resolution and a 5x optical zoom. The female scales were typically of a ctenoid type whereas the male scales showed the presence of cycloid and ctenoid types. The study described 21 scale morphotypes in the male species while 24 morphotypes were described in the female species. These… Expand

Morphology of Goby Species, Glossogobius celebius (Valenciennes 1837) and Glossogobius giuris (Hamilton 1822) in Lake Lanao Mindanao, Philippines
The results showed that the entire morphometric characters measured in both sexes within the two species were not significantly different, male and female were not sexually dimorphic with apparent distinctions on their morphological attributes, particularly on their differences in sizes and lengths.

Otolith and Scale morphology of Endemic fish Cyprinion macrostomum in Tigris–Euphrates Basin
The otolith characters such as shape, size, proximal and distal surfaces, antirostrum and rostrum types and the scale morphological characters are the distinguishable characters for the C. macrostomum samples. Expand
Describing Scale Shape Morphology of Glossogobius Giuris using Landmark-based Geometric Morphometrics
Results of the study have shown that there is no sexual dimorphism in the fish based on scale shapes, however, variations of the scales do exist within sexes based on the results of the relative warp analysis. Expand
Digital light microscopy to characterize the scales of two goatfishes (Perciformes; Mullidae)
This study accentuated that scales from different body regions may exhibit variation in surface ornamentations, that scale morphology could successfully be used to discriminate the examined goatfishes, and that the use of fish scale microscopy is an easy and relatively rapid method and does not require fish sacrifice.

It could be concluded that the shape and size of lepidonts on the circuli crest and also the pattern of reticulate or honeycomb form structures in the focus region may provide reliable taxonomic tools. Expand
Scanning Electron Microscopy of the scale morphology in Cyprinid fish, Rutilus frisii kutum Kamenskii, 1901 (Actinopterygii: Cyprinidae)
It could be concluded that the shape and size of lepidonts on the circuli crest, the position, shape andsize of tubercles and the presence of both anterior and posterior radii may provide reliable taxonomic tools. Expand
Squamation in Andreolepis from the Late Silurian of Sweden
The origin of osteichthyans (bony fishes and tetrapods) dates back to the Late Silurian, but theearly evolution of osteichthyans is poorly understood. Andreolepis is one of the oldestExpand
Describing variations in scales between sexes of the yellowstriped goatfish, Upeneus vittatus (Forskål, 1775) (Perciformes: Mullidae)
It is demonstrated that scale characteristics can provide useful taxonomic information on the morphological differences between sexes of U. vittatus and that elliptic Fourier analysis and principal Component analysis are good tools to discriminate variation in scale shapes. Expand
Description of a New Gobiid Fish, Glossogobius aureus, with Notes on Related Species of the Genus
One form of Glossogobius which has been regarded as G . giuris by various authors is revealed to be a new species.The most important characteristic for distinguishing this species from others of theExpand
Does fish scale morphology allow the identification of populations at a local scale? A case study for rostrum dace Leuciscus leuciscus burdigalensis in River Viaur (SW France)
The results reveal that scale morphology can detect spatial structure in fish populations at a fine scale, which has implications for riverine fish conservation. Expand
Comparative scale morphology and squamation patterns in triplefins (Pisces: Teleostei: Perciformes: Tripterygiidae)
It is concluded that scale and squamation studies can be valuable tools in investigating systematic relationships among the Tripterygiidae. Expand
New method of quantifying scale shape and an application to stock identification in walleye (Stizostedion vitreum vitreum)
Abstract The planar shape of fish scales may be quantified by a method of unrolling the digitized scale outlines and describing the resultant series by Fourier series. Each scale shape is defined byExpand
