Very special thanks for the first photo of Glyptoparus delicatulus to Brent Tibbats, Guam.
Adult Delicate blennies are found in pairs or in small groups in dead reefs with algal turf, in mixed coral and sand areas, in corals reefs and in clear outer lagoon reefs down to 14 meters.
Glyptoparus delicatulus is common and locally abundant and collected for the trade.
