Abstract A new shrimp-associated goby, Stonogobiops yasha sp. nov., is described on the basis of nine specimens collected from the Ryukyu Islands, Japan. This species is easily distinguished from other congeneric species in having reddish-orange stripes on a white body and only two median cephalic sensory pores on the head.

Results confirm that the partnership of C. saepepallens and its shrimp is facultative, but show differences to former observations, possible reasons for this are discussed. Expand

The phylogenetic analysis using the neighbor-joining method showed that the kinship between S. yasha and Acentrogobius is closer than those between Stonogobiops and other selected genera. Expand
The Partnership between Gobiid Fishes and Burrowing Alpheid Shrimps
Th e association between non-burrowing gobiid fi shes and burrowing alpheid shrimps is a mutualistic, co-evolved partnership. Th e shrimp constructs and maintains a burrow which is used by the gobyExpand
