Abstract Two new species of the formerly monotypic gobiesocid genus Discotrema are described. Discotrema monogrammum is described from specimens collected from crinoids in Papua New Guinea and Indonesia, with photographic and literature records from the Great Barrier Reef, Philippines, and Christmas Island, Indian Ocean. The specimens were first believed to be a color form of D. crinophilum, described from Fiji and Papua New Guinea, and also commensal in crinoids. Both species have a single… 
Description of a New Genus and Two New Species of Indo-Pacific Clingfishes (Gobiesocidae: Diademichthyinae) with Redescription and Reassignment of Two Species Previously Assigned to Lepadichthys Waite, 1904
A new genus and two new species of Indo-Pacific clingfishes are described in this study and two additional species previously assigned to Lepadichthys are transferred to Flabellicauda, new genus, including F. alleni, newspecies, and F. cometes, new species.
A New Genus and Species of Clingfish (Teleostei: Gobiesocidae) from Western Australia
The new taxon is distinguished from all other members of the Gobiesocidae by having vast fields of tiny conical teeth throughout the oral jaws that are arranged in multiple, regular rows along the lingual surface of the premaxilla and the dentary.

A new species, Propherallodus longipterus, from the Philippines and redescription of P. briggsi Shiogaki and Dotsu 1983 (Gobiesocidae: Diplocrepinae)
Propherallodus longipterus sp. nov. (Gobiesocidae: Diplocrepinae) is described on the basis of three specimens (17.0–22.8 mm in standard length: SL) from the Philippines. The new species is
Molecular Phylogenetics of the Clingfishes (Teleostei: Gobiesocidae)—Implications for Classification
The phylogenetic relationships among members of the family Gobiesocidae are investigated using both mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequence data to assess whether the alternative classification schemes are compatible with inferred evolutionary relationships.
Crinoid diversity and their symbiotic communities at Bangka Island (North Sulawesi, Indonesia)
Members of the order Comatulida (Echinodermata: Crinoidea) are widely distributed on Indo-Pacific reefs, where they host a highly diverse and understudied cryptofauna, which makes them a potential
Coastal fish diversity of the Socotra Archipelago, Yemen.
The Socotra Archipelago is identified as a major hotspot of coastal fish diversity in the Indian Ocean and the total archipelagic richness is extrapolated at up to 875 species based on incidence-based richness models and expert opinion.
Phylogeography of the Pacific Blueline Surgeonfish, Acanthurus nigroris, Reveals High Genetic Connectivity and a Cryptic Endemic Species in the Hawaiian Archipelago
A modest bias in gene flow from the southeast towards the northwest islands of the Hawaiian Archipelago, indicating that the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument may be a recipient, rather than a source of propagules to replenish reef resources, and genetic divergence between Hawaii and the rest of the Pacific range is detected.


A New Genus and Species of Clingfish from the Western Pacific
A small, new species of clingfish from the Bismarck Archipelago and the Fiji Islands is described. It belongs to a new genus that is apparently specialized for a commensal relationship with certain
Reef and Shore Fishes of the South Pacific: New Caledonia to Tahiti and the Pitcairn Islands
The South Pacific has long been in need of a comprehensive guide to reef and shore fishes. This volume covers the inshore fish fauna of New Caledonia, the Loyalty Islands, the southern Gilbert
Fishes of Christmas Island, Indian ocean
The first fish collections at Christmas Island were those of CW. Andrews (British Museum) in 1897 and 1908, CA. Gibson-Hill (Raffles Museum, Singapore) in 1938-40, and E.J. Car and G.F. Mees (Western
New Species of Lepadichthys from the Philippine Islands
Abstract A new species of clingfish is described from the shallow marine waters of the Philippines. This brings the number of species in the the genus to 10, all of them found in the tropical to
