The Marine Gobies of the Hawaiian Islands

  title={The Marine Gobies of the Hawaiian Islands},
  author={David W. Greenfield and John E. Randall},
A total of 34 species of gobies (Teleostei, Gobiidae) are known from the Hawaiian Islands, four of which are freshwater species. All species are treated in a key, but only marine species are illustrated and treated in detail. Information on their nomenclature, counts and measurements, distinctive characters, coloration, distribution and habitat is presented. Two new species, Cabillus caudimacula, and Pleurosicya larsonae are described. An unidentified species of Favonigobius from O’ahu, a… 
Cabillus atripelvicus, a new species of gobiid fish from the Ogasawara Islands, with a key to species of the genus
Cabillus atripelvicus is distinguished from the four other described species of the genus by its high count of 18–20 pectoral rays, presence of median predorsal scales, longer pECToral fins, and distinctive color pattern, including black pelvic fins.
Eviota piperata, a new gobiid species from Palau (Teleostei: Gobiidae).
A new species of dwarfgoby, Eviota piperata is described from Palau, which belongs to the cephalic sensory-pore system Group II (lacking only the IT pore); has some pectoral-fin rays branched.
A revision of the fish genus Oxyurichthys (Gobioidei: Gobiidae) with descriptions of four new species.
The widespread tropical gobionelline fish genus Oxyurichthys is monophyletic due to its species sharing two characters considered derived within the Stenogobius Group of the Gobionellinae (Gobioidei:
Two New Species of the Gobiid Fish Genus Trimma (Perciformes: Gobioidei) from Southern Japan
Two new species of the gobiid fish genus Trimma, T. yanagitai and T. nomurai, are de- scribed based on specimens from southern Japan. T. yanagitai is distinguished from all congeneric species by the

The shallow-water (<150 m) antipatharian fauna of the Hawaiian Archipelago is described and illustrated based on a systematic examination of skeletal spine morphology, polyp morphology, colony
Two new species of Cabillus (Perciformes: Gobiidae) and the first record of Cabillus macrophthalmus from the Western Indian Ocean.
Two new species of the gobiid genus Cabillus, C. nigromarginatus sp. nov. and Cabillus nigrostigmus sp. nov. are described. Cabillus nigromarginatus (from Rodrigues, Western Indian Ocean) is
Fishes collected during the 2017 MarineGEO assessment of Kāne‘ohe Bay, O‘ahu, Hawai‘i
The results of a survey of the fishes of Kāne‘ohe Bay, O‘ahu, conducted in 2017 as part of the Smithsonian Institution MarineGEO Hawaii bioassessment verify the hypothesis that Hawaiian populations of species broadly distributed throughout the Indo-Pacific may be genetically distinct.
Gonad morphology of Rhyacichthys aspro (Valenciennes, 1837), and the diagnostic reproductive morphology of gobioid fishes
This work provides detailed descriptions of the reproductive morphology of adult males and females of Rhyacichthys aspro to assess the diagnostic reproductive morphological characters of this speciose clade of bony fishes.
Small cryptic fishes on coral reefs: ecological effects of extreme life history traits
The results provide evidence of on-going recruitment of these small cryptic fishes, which appears to compensate for an exceptionally short life span on the reef, and suggest that mobility may play a strong role in restoring fish assemblages in the short-term.

Two New Eviota Species from the Hawaiian Islands (Teleostei: Gobiidae)
Eviota epiphanes has been the only Eviota species known from the Hawaiian Islands, but two additional undescribed species have been discovered. Eviota susanae n. sp. is described from shallow,
A revision of the gobiid fish genus Kelloggella
The four goby species of the genus Kelloggella are among the smallest fishes known and the discovery of a new species from Eniwetok and Rarotonga led to the present revision.
A revision of the gobiid genus Bryaninops (Pisces), with a description of six new species

  • 1985
Six new species of tropical Indo-Pacific gobiid fishes may be distinguished from each other by a combination of characters including extent of gill opening, pectoral ray counts, scalation, teeth, colour pattern, invertebrate associate specificity and proportions of head and body.
Fusigobius whitley, a junior synonym of the gobiid fish genus Coryphopterus gill
The recent collection of gobiid specimens of Coryphopterus eidolon Bohlke and Robins in the Bahamas revealed a striking resemblance to species of the Indo-Pacific genus Fusigobius Whitley (1930), leading to a comparison of the type species and other species of these two nominal genera.
Vitraria clarescens was described as a new genus and new species by Jordan and Evermann (1903) and has remained an enigma. The type series of seven specimens was "obtained at Hilo," and in the
Checklist of the shore and epipelagic fishes of Tonga
A checklist is given below of 1162 species of shore and epipelagic fishes belonging to 111 families that occur in the islands of Tonga, South Pacifie Ocean; 40 of these are epipelagic species. As

A key is given to the species of Pleurosicya and to differentiate the genus from allied genera (Bryaninops, Lobulogobius, Luposicya and Phyllogohius), which are commensal on a variety of invertebrates and plants.
Eleven New Records and Validations of Shore Fishes from the Hawaiian Islands
New records, new species, and name changes of shore fishes for the Hawaiian Islands published since 1980 are briefly reviewed. The following species of fishes are new records or recognized as valid

A population of the Hawaiian coral-reef goby was sampled over a 12-month period to determine basic demographics and reproductive parameters and compared and contrasted with those of other gobiid fishes to elucidate general differences between temperate and tropical species.
A Survey of the Small Reef Fishes of Kane'ohe Bay, O'ahu, Hawaiian Islands
The small, sedentary fishes in Kane'ohe Bay, O'ahu, Hawaiian Islands, were surveyed based on 75 small rotenone stations from 10 different habitats, finding that a search for a single model to explain assemblage structure of coral-reef fishes is ill founded.
