Eviota dalyi, a new dwarfgoby from the Amirante Islands, Seychelles (Teleostei: Gobiidae)

Greenfield, David W.; Gordon, Luke

A new species of dwarfgoby, Eviota dalyi, is described from three specimens collected in the Amirante Islands, Seychelles, in the western Indian Ocean. It is characterized by a cephalic sensory-canal pore pattern lacking only the IT pore (Pattern 2); a dorsal/anal-fin-ray formula of 8/7; 15 branched pectoral-fin rays; a fifth pelvic-fin ray; and long, white anterior narial tubes. The live color pattern is distinctive, not similar to any of the 116 other species of the genus, comprising bright red-and-white markings on the head and orange and yellow bars crossing the translucent body.
