The lined rockskipper, Istiblennius lineatus, is a species of combtooth blenny fish distributed from the Laccadive and Maldive islands, central Indian Ocean, east to Mangareva and Gambier Islands in the Pacific Ocean. It occurs as far north as Toyohama, Japan, and now it is recorded from the coastal area of the Makran Sea, Iran. Six specimens of I. lineatus were collected from 3 localities in the Iranian coast of the Makran Sea during a fish survey in November 2015. These specimens represent…

A prelude to the molecular systematics and diversity of combtooth blennies (Teleostei: Blenniidae) in the Persian Gulf and Oman Sea

A COI reference database for intertidal combtooth blennies (Blenniidae) is established and the results of the first molecular taxonomic inventory of this group along the northern coasts of the Persian Gulf and Oman Sea are documented.

Genetic diversification, population structure, and geophylogeny of the Scarface rockskipper Istiblennius pox (Teleostei: Blenniidae) in the Persian Gulf and Oman Sea

The results revealed no significant population genetic structure and no provable recent demographic expansion in the studied samples, suggesting that phenotypic variability among the Scarface rockskipper populations may arise without major genetic differentiation.



Fishes of the Laccadive Archipelago

From the point of view of fish and fisheries, the Laccadive Archipelago has remained a little known area till about a decade and a half ago. In the Fishes of India by Francis Day, brought out

The Indo-West Pacific blenniid fish genus Istiblennius reappraised : a revision of Istiblennius, Blenniella, and Paralticus, new genus

A cladistic analysis supports the hypothesis that Blenniella and Istiblennius form a clade, and the results of the generic analyses highly tentative are considered.

Distribution Pattern and Morphological Differences between the Sexes of River Blenny, Salaria fluviatilis (Asso, 1801), in the Ceyhan River Basin, Turkey

According to principal component analysis, the differences between the sexes resulted mainly from the measurements related to dorsal fin depth, head depth, body depth, and caudal peduncle depth.

Phylogeny and biogeography of a shallow water fish clade (Teleostei: Blenniiformes)

The first comprehensive phylogenetic hypothesis for a monophyletic Labrisomidae with five tribes is presented and global distributions of blenny genera included in the analysis support the evolution of a largely Neotropical clade whose closest relatives are temperate in distribution.

rationale for doing so: comments on occurrence in the market, or time of spawning, seem to have been added almost whimsically, and the habitat information is uneven. I have offered detailed criticism

The biology of blennies

The systematics of the Blennioidei and the Included Families Dactyloscop Families, Chaenopidae, Clinidae and Labrisomidae are compared with that of the Tripterygiidae (Triplefins) systematics.
