Gerald R. Allen and Mark V. Erdmann: Two new species of Calumia (Teleostei: Eleotridae) from West Papua, Indonesia, pp. 71-80

Abstract
Two new species of reef-dwelling eleotrids are described from Cenderawasih Bay, West Papua, Indonesia. Calumia eilperinae n. sp. is described from two specimens, 20.7-22.1 mm SL. It differs from the three other members of the genus in having a distinctive pattern of light and gray bands on the dorsal, anal and caudal fins, 13 pectoral rays and a unique short, rounded second dorsal fin. The upper jaw extends posteriorly to below the anterior half of the pupil and is intermediate to other Calumia with respect to this feature. Calumia papuensis n. sp. is described on the basis of 13 specimens, 18.4-30.7 mm SL. It is superficially similar to C. profunda, but has a more slender caudal peduncle (depth 3.0-3.7 vs. 2.4-2.9 in SL), longer filamentous extensions on the second dorsal and anal fins (often reaching middle of caudal fin), modally more predorsal scales (mean 9.31 vs. 7.8) and more gray bars on the side of the body (nine vs. 6-7). Both new species were collected together in 5-12 m depth on a sheltered, near-shore coral reef.
