Gerald R. Allen: Kiunga bleheri, a new Blue-Eye (Pisces: Pseudomugilidae) from fresh waters of Papua New Guinea, pp. 79-85

Abstract

Kiunga bleheri, new species, is described from 9 specimens, 16.7-28.4 mm SL, collected by H. Bleher in 1994 and 2003 from the Fly River system in the vicinity of Kiunga, Papua New Guinea. It differs from its only known congener, K. ballochi, also from the Kiunga area, on the basis of its much shorter second dorsal and anal fins, significant modal difference in the number of second dorsal fin rays, 6 versus 5 transverse scale rows on the body, and in usually having most of the second dorsal and anal fin rays unbranched.
