Abstract

A new species of dwarfgoby, Eviota minuta, with a complete cephalic sensory-canal pore system (pattern I) and a concave, cup-shaped male urogenital papilla with undulating margins is described from the Philippine Islands. It has a dorsal/anal fin-ray formula 8/8, three dark bars radiating from the lower eye, a dark oblong spot on the ventral pectoral-fin base, two more dark spots on the dorsal portion or these spots fusing into a dark oblong spot angling anterodorsally, and four broad, dark subcutaneous bars on the posterior body.
