John E. Randall: Five new shrimp gobies of the genus Amblyeleotris from islands of Oceania, pp. 61-79

Abstract

Five new species of shrimp gobies of the Indo-Pacific genus Amblyeleotris are described from islands of the central and south Pacific: A. katherine, formerly misidentified as A. fasciata (Herre), from 14 specimens from the Society Islands (type locality), Cook Islands, Marshall Islands, and Mariana Islands; A. biguttata described from four specimens from New Caledonia (type locality) and the Solomon Islands (named for two large black spots on the chin); A. ellipse described from nine specimens from American Samoa (named for the elliptical mark in the caudal fin); A. bellicauda described from one specimen from New Caledonia (named for the striking colour pattern of the caudal fin, also featuring a large elliptical mark); and A. stenotaeniata, described from one specimen from New Caledonia (named for the narrow dark bars on the body). With these descriptions, the total number of recognized species of Amblyeleotris is now 33.
