Tag: Striped Pygmy Goby (Eviota Sebreei)

The Striped Pygmy Goby (Eviota Sebreei) is another of the very common Pygmy Gobies which are present at almost every dive site, but are often overlooked due to their tiny size.

Growing to a maximum length of 2 - 3cm, the Striped Pygmy Goby can usually be found on large coral formations. It is an easily recognised species, with its main distinguishing features being a translucent body with a single dark brown/black band along its length.

Along the upper edge of the dark band are a number of narrow dash-like white lines whilst on the caudal peduncle is what appears like a dark spot with a light outer ring.
