Helen K. Larson: A new species of Egglestonichthys from northern Australian estuaries (Teleostei, Gobiidae, Gobiinae), pp. 147-154

Abstract?

A new species, that appears to belong to the gobiid genus Egglestonichthys, is described from specimens collected from the shallow coast and estuaries of Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory, Australia. It is unusual among gobiids in that the lower half of the pectoral-fin lacks connecting membrane between the fin rays, so that the rays are free (resembling the pectoral fin of the fishes of the family Polynemidae). Its closest relative may be E. bombylios Larson and Hoese, although its sensory papilla pattern differs from others in the genus. A key to the four known species presently placed in Egglestonichthys is provided.
