Abstract

Two new species in the dwarfgoby genus Eviota, E. oculopiperita and E. geminata, are described from Saudi Arabia in the Red Sea, bringing the total number of species of Eviota in the Red Sea to eight. Eviota oculopiperita is most similar to E. shimadai, but differs in coloration and the structure of the fourth pelvic-fin ray. Eviota geminata is most similar to E. randalli but differs in lacking the IT and SOT cephalic sensory pores and in details of coloration.
