Abstract

A new species of gobiid fish, Vanderhorstia lepidobucca, is described from Lembeh Strait, North Sulawesi, Indonesia on the basis of eight specimens, 23.5-40.4 mm SL. The new taxon is the only member of the genus possessing scales on the preoperculum (cheek) and also three scales on the upper anterior corner of the operculum. Other diagnostic features include 13 dorsal soft rays, 14 anal soft rays, first dorsal fin relatively short with no elongate rays, 51-55 longitudinal scales, 17-18 predorsal scales, and a lanceolate caudal fin. The head and body are generally light brown with yellow vermiculated bands on the head, prominent yellow and blue-margined black spot on the middle of the operculum, and about 16-18 short brown bars along the middle of the body. The median fins are generally bluish with yellow spots, stripes, or streaks, except the anal fin is mainly yellow with blue on the distal third.
