Doug Hoese, Koichi Shibukawa and Jiro Sakaue: A redescription of the gobiid fish Cryptocentrus sericus Herre, with clarification of Cryptocentrus leptocephalus and C. melanopus, pp. 163-172

Abstract
Cryptocentrus sericus Herre is redescribed from the holotype and recently collected material in the Australian Museum, Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory and Western Australian Museum. The species is distinctive in coloration, presence of predorsal scales, and in fin-ray and scale counts. We provide a comparison with other species with similar morphological features. Illustrations are provided of C. sericus and its most similar species, C. fasciatus. A brief comparison and figures are provided for separating the related C. leptocephalus and C. melanopus. These two species have been confused and frequently misidentified.
