Info

Eviota longirostris Tornabene, Greenfield & Erdmann, 2021

Currently known only from the southern coastal region of West Papua, from southern Raja Ampat (based on photos only) to Fakfak, Kaimana, and the Aru Archipelago, although possibly more widespread including perhaps to Australia. Observed in shallow depths of 2–8 m on coastal reefs exposed to significant terrigenous influences (freshwater influx and sedimentation) and moderate to strong currents. Observed individually on coralline algae and dead coral substrates.
