Article
Two species that had previously been referred to as Glossogobius giuris from Australia are redescribed and tentatively treated as Glossogobius giuris and Glossogobius laticeps. The two species are largely allopatric in Australia with G. laticeps found on the east coast of Queensland and some rivers of the Northern Territory, while G. giuris is dist...
Article
Flathead gobies (genus Glossogobius) include around 40 small to medium sized benthic fishes found primarily in freshwater habitats across the Indo‐Pacific, having biodiversity value as well as cultural and economic value as food fishes, especially in developing countries. To help resolve considerable confusion regarding the identification of some o...
Article
Platycephalid Hyalorhynchus pellucidus Ogilby 1910 was described based on four specimens collected from the coast of Queensland, Australia, by the F.I.S. Endeavour on 1910. Although previous authors considered the four specimens to be syntypes of the species, we consider that all 78 specimens included in the species by Ogilby are syntypes. This stu...
Article
The platycephalid genus Suggrundus Whitley 1930 was established as a replacement name for Insidiator Jordan and Snyder 1900 because the latter was considered to be preoccupied by Insidiator Oken 1842. Although Suggrundus has been regarded as valid, it was revealed in this study that Insidiator Oken 1842 is an unavailable name because no description...
Article
Allomogurnda multicincta, n. sp. is described on the basis of 168 specimens, 11 -36 mm SL, collected from Malas Creek, a small tributary of the Sepik River, Papua New Guinea. Morphological and preliminary genetic comparisons indicate it is closely related to A. nesolepis, which is widely distributed in northern New Guinea. The new species differs f...
Article
The current paper describes three, highly distinctive, new species of Glossogobius from southern New Guinea and northern Australia. The species differ from other species of Glossogobius in the combination of small size (maximum size to 50 mm SL), strong sexual dimorphism in mouth and fin sizes and reductions of nape scales and head pores in two of...

Tomiyamichthys levisquama is described as a new species from the Northern Territory and Queensland, Australia from estuaries and soft bottom marine environments. It is distinctive in body and head shape, head coloration and by the absence of ctenoid scales on the body. It is compared with the related species Tomiyamichthys russus (Cantor 1849), whi...

Amphidromous species of the Glossogobius celebius complex found in lower reaches rivers of the eastern Indian Ocean and the western Pacific Ocean are reviewed. Glossogobius celebius is not as widely distributed as previously thought and is confined to the eastern Indian Ocean to eastern Indonesia. Three species are described as new species from Aus...
Article
The familial classification of gobioid fishes is in a state of flux, reflecting incomplete understanding of phylogenetic relationships within the suborder. However, there has been rapid progress over the past decade or so, which is likely to continue, undoubtedly leading to the erection of new family-group names. One such family, Odontobutidae, was...
