Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Perciformes (Perch-likes) > Gobiidae (Gobies) > Gobiinae
Etymology: deminuta: Name from Latin adjective 'deminuta' meaning small, diminutive. Both scientific and common names refer to the tiny size and reduced morphology of this species; noun in apposition.

Environment / Climate / Range Ecology

Marine; benthopelagic; depth range 2 - 41 m (Ref. 94084), usually 3 - 6 m (Ref. 94084).   Tropical

Distribution Countries | FAO areas | Ecosystems | Occurrences | Point map | Introductions | Faunafri

Eastern Central Pacific: Marquesas Islands, French Polynesia (widely distributed among the islands of the Archipelago).

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 0.9 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 94084)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8-9; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 7 - 8. This species is distinguished by the following set of characters: no sensory pores on head; dorsal/anal formula 8/7; branched pectoral-fin rays; fifth pelvic-fin ray absent; caudal peduncle has a dark spot, typically restricted to above lateral midline; caudal peduncle with a dark blotch over the middle, and a dark bar or crescent over its posterior margin and base of caudal rays (Ref. 94084).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Collected from coral and rocky reefs at depths from 3-41 m; very abundant at Nuku Hiva, where nearly 250 individuals were captured in a single collection between 3-6 m depth (Ref. 94084).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 27.7 - 28.1, mean 28 (based on 18 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00617 (0.00281 - 0.01352), b=3.08 (2.89 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.9   ±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) .
