Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 13-14; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 6 - 8; Vertebrae: 26. Small, slender-bodied Eugnathogobius; first dorsal fin VI; second dorsal rays I, 7-8, modally I,7; anal rays I, 6-8, modally I, 7; pectoral rays 15-17, modally 16; longitudinal scales 32-41; TRB 10-13; headpores absent; predorsal scales 14-20; scales on body small, mostly ctenoid; gill opening restricted to just under opercle; colour pale yellowish with dark scale margins in network pattern and variably distinct dark stripe along mid-side of body (Ref. 80545).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

The species appears to be marine to estuarine in habitats. The specimens from the freshwater well on Aldabra are intriguing in their isolation (Ref. 80545).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5020   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00871 (0.00392 - 0.01936), b=3.07 (2.88 - 3.26), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.5 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) .
