  "abstract": "<p>A new gobiid species, <em>Sueviota minersorum</em>, is described from 4 specimens, 17.9&ndash;23.2 mm SL, collected from inside <em>Theonella</em> tube sponges at 20&ndash;22 m depth. The new species has a dorsal/anal-fin ray count of 9/8 and 17 or 18 pectoral-fin rays, all unbranched, and 27 or 28 lateral scales. It furthermore has a basal membrane fully joining the two branched fifth pelvic-fin rays, a character shared with 4 congeners: <em>Sueviota bryozophila</em>, <em>S. lachneri</em>, <em>S. larsonae</em>, and <em>S. tubicola</em>. <em>Sueviota minersorum</em> is most similar to <em>S. lachneri</em>, but differs in having a stocky body with a deep caudal peduncle, not tapering from the mid-body, and in color patterns. It differs from <em>S. bryozophila</em> in having all pelvic-fin rays branched (vs. unbranched), having a single AITO pore (vs. paired ITO pores), PITO and NA pores (vs. absent), and in color patterns. It differs from <em>S. larsonae</em> and <em>S. tubicola</em> by the absence of a frenum (vs. present) and in color patterns.</p>",
