Abstract

A new species of dwarfgoby, Eviota sodwanaensis, is described from Sodwana Bay, Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa. The species has a complete cephalic sensory-pore system (pattern 1), a dorsal/anal fin-ray formula of 8/7, branched pectoral-fin rays, a short 5th pelvic-fin ray, a dark occipital spot, a dark spot on the preural centrum, black first dorsal and anal fins, and dark second dorsal fin. The description is based on 9 type and 5 non-type specimens.
