Richard Winterbottom: Feia ranta, a new species of gobiid fish (Acanthopterygii; Perciformes) from Vietnam, pp. 97-102

Abstract

A distinctive new species of the gobiid Feia, F. ranta, is described based on three specimens from Hon Tom Island, Nha Trang Bay, Vietnam. It differs from its congeners in several characteristics, including barred colour pattern and having predorsal scales. These and other characters necessitate a redefinition of the genus. The relationships of Feia appear to lie with other genera possessing cephalic folds or ridges bearing sensory papillae (Gobiopterus, Callogobius and Mangarinus). Of these, initial analysis suggests that Feia may be the sister group of Mangarinus based on the configuration of the paired longitudinal row of sensory papillae on the chin.
