Xenisthmus chi n.sp., described from two specimens from Rowley Shoals, Timor Sea, has in combination: second dorsal-fin rays I,12; anal-fin rays I,11; predorsal area with narrow median wedge of scales extending forward almost to pore D; posterior naris without flap; and head and body pale with brown reticulate mottling, forming about 11 X-shaped markings along sides between pectoral- and caudal-fin bases. Xenisthmus eirospilus n.sp., described from 15 specimens from throughout the southwest…

Review of Red Sea Xenisthmus Snyder (Teleostei: Gobioidei: Xenisthmidae), with description of a new species
TLDR
Three species of the xenisthmid genus Xenisthmus Snyder are recorded from the Red Sea, distinguished from all other congeners in having a reduced number of cephalic sensory pores and 14–15 segmented rays in the second dorsal fin.
Gymnoxenisthmus tigrellus, new genus and species of gobioid fish from the Red Sea (Gobioidei: Xenisthmidae).
TLDR
Evaluation of available (mostly external) characters suggests the new genus Gymnoxenisthmus tigrellus is the sister group of a clade consisting of Rotuma, Tyson and Allomicrodesmus.

Tyson belos, new genus and species of Western Pacific fish (Gobiidae, Xenisthminae), with discussions of Gobioid osteology and classification
TLDR
Tyson belos is described, based on specimens from the Great Barrier Reef, Trobriand Islands, and Lau Islands, a diminutive coral-reef species that appears to be closely related to Xenisthmus Snyder, Allomicrodesmus Schultz, and an undescribed genus.
Paraxenisthmus springeri, New Genus and Species of Gobioid Fish from the West Pacific, and Its Phylogenetic Position within the Xenisthmidae
TLDR
Based on a cladistic analysis of osteological and external characters, Paraxenisthmus is the sister group of a monophyletic group that includes all other xenisthmid genera (Allomicrodesmus, Rotuma, Tyson and Xenisth Mus).
Cyanine Blue: A Versatile and Harmless Stain for Specimen Observation
TLDR
This staining technique is so widespread and popular in Japan that it is the ichthyological equivalent of eosin-hematoxylin staining in histology, for which almost every researcher has designed his or her own protocol.
