  title={Trichonotus halstead, a new sand-diving fish from Papua New Guinea},
  author={Eugenie. Clark and M Pohle},
  journal={Environmental Biology of Fishes},
SynopsisTrichonotus halstead, family Trichonotidae, is described from 3 males and 4 females collected from a sand slope off the northwest end of Normanby Island, Papua New Guinea. It was part of a large population of 4 sympatric species of Trichonotus. The elaborately colored dorsal fin of the male, distinct among trichonotids, is brilliant gold anteriorly followed by a black patch, then a series of 8 to 40 conspicuous, black or dark brown spots that extend onto the upper caudal fin. The spines… 

Spawning behavior of the collared knifefish, Cymolutes torquatus (Labridae) in Papua New Guinea

Sexual dichromatism, color changes during mating, and cleaning of C. torquatus by juvenile Halichoeres zeylonicus are documented with color photographs.

Darting behavior of a sandburrower fish,Limnichthys nitidus (Creediidae), in the Red Sea

The darting movements, size and cryptic coloration of L. nitidus make them difficult to see yet they may be the most numerous fish in shallow sandy areas of the Red Sea reaching concentrations of over 50 m-2, a density exceeded in chordates only by the lancelet.

The Hawaiian sandburrowers Crystallodytes cookei and Limnichthys nitidus were found to be protandrous hermaphrodites based on a histological examination of gonad morphology and development, suggesting that sex change evolved independently in these taxa.

Pair-­formation in coral reef fishes: an ecological perspective

It appears that the basis of pair- formation in reef fishes is complex and may involve a range of ecological factors related to food procurement and predation risk.

Supraneural and Predorsal Bones in Fishes: Development and Homologies

D dissimilarity in the developmental sequence and position of pterygiophores and supraneurals (=predorsals) of centrarchid fishes, in conjunction with a reinterpretation of phylogenetic correlations, indicates that supranural, the more widely-used, senior synonym, be used to refer to these elements in teleosts.
