Richard Winderbottom: Two new species of Trimma (Gobiidae) from the central, wester, and south Pacific, pp. 45-52

Abstract

Two new species of the genus Trimma are described. Trimma milta n. sp. is characterized by the presence of scales in the predorsal midline, an unbranched fifth pelvic fin rays which is about half the length of the fourth rays, a lack of elongate spines in the first dorsal fin, a red-brown or yellowish coloration, usually with the scale pockets clearly outlined with melanophores and chromatophores, and, at least in adults, two to three scales on the upper portion of the opercle. Trimma woutsi is distinguished by a white saddle along the dorsal margin of the pectoral base, large irregular spots on the head and body, an elongate dorsal spine, no predorsal scales, and a fifth pelvic fin ray which branches dichotomously 2-3 times.
