A key to the dwarfgoby species
(Teleostei: Gobiidae: Eviota) described between
1871 and 2016
David W. Greenfield &
The dwarfgobies in the genus
Eviota are currently represented by 111 valid
described species, occurring throughout the Indo-Pacific
Ocean except for the eastern Pacific region, mainly
in coral-reef habitats. A dichotomous diagnostic key
to 107 of these species is presented, with information
on characters, type material, references for the original
descriptions, distributions, and photographs of each
species. All of the species described from the first,
in 1871, up to April 2016 are included; four more
described after that date are listed, but not included
in the key.
