Info

Trimma wangunui Winterbottom, Richard & Erdmann, Mark V., 2019
Wangunu’s Pygmygoby

A new species of Trimma (Pisces; Gobiidae) from the Western Pacific Ocean

Named for Noel Wangunu, one of Papua New Guinea’s foremost reef scientists and marine conservationists, who also assisted MVE in collections and local permits.

Trimma wangunui is currently recorded only from off Nuakata Island in the Milne Bay Province of Papua New Guinea, from Atauro Island in Timor-Leste, and from Verde Island in the Batangas Province of the Philippines. It appears to be a rare species, with most specimens collected between 10– 16 m. At Nuakata and Atauro Islands, it was found living under large pieces of dead foliose coral rubble on a sandy bottom subject to moderate currents and wave action. It is apparently a solitary species, with only a single specimen collected from each piece of rubble examined.
