Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Perciformes (Perch-likes) > Gobiidae (Gobies) > Gobiinae
Etymology: Elacatinus: Greek, elakatines = fusiform fishes preserved in salt (Ref. 45335);  redimiculus: The specific name, redimiculus, refers to ribbons that were sometimes attached to the side of a headdress then passed over the shoulders to drape across each side of the breast, or decoratively woven or plaited into hair. We apply this name as an a.

Issue
This species is placed in the genus Tigrigobius in Eschmeyer (CofF ver. Jul. 2010: Ref. 84883), considered as valid. But see Taylor & Akins (2007: Ref. 58341) for the generic treament.

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 11; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 9 - 10. Elacatinus redimiculus can be distinguished from other species of Tigrigobius by the reddish orange blotches or broken bands on the head and the 13 reddish orange to dark brown bands between the pectoral fin and caudal fin. The body is elongate, laterally compressed, and naked except for usually 4 basicaudal ctenoid scales, arranged typically in a single, vertical row on each side of the peduncle. One specimen has a fifth scale in a second row on the right side, and another specimen has two scales on the left ventral half of the peduncle, and none dorsally. The tongue is bilobed. The conical teeth are arranged in a single row, but males have enlarged, recurved canines. Males also possess an elongated first dorsal spine. Males have a slender, conical genital papilla; females have a blunt papilla (Ref 58341).

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00891 (0.00412 - 0.01928), b=3.08 (2.91 - 3.25), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.3 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
