Info

Vanderhorstia auronotata was first described in 2007 by Dr. Jack Randall †2020, it was not easy to get a photo of a living goby, for this our thanks to Dr. Mark Erdmann, who could get the goby around Raja Ampat in front of the camera lens.

The goby lives together with an Alpheus crab in a burrow in sloping, silty sandy soils.

Color when fresh:
Light bluish gray, white, belly white, with four narrow dark brown bars on body (scale centers within stripes paler) and a broader fifth semicircular bar at base of caudal fin; three brown-bordered orange-yellow lines between dark dark bars on body and two in front of first dark bar (poste-yellow lines interrupted in spots); cheek and cheek and auricle with dark-bordered orange spots becoming browner dorsally on head; one oblique dark
dark brown spot on upper part of operculum and smaller dark brown spot above pectoral-fin base; snout dark brown, upper lip with a broad brownish-orange band; median fins with brown rays, bluish membranes, and brown-bordered orange-yellow yellow bands and spots; pelvic fins white.
The large fin spine of the first dorsal fin is not present in this specimen, dorsal fin is not present in this specimen (it is the result of a black background caused by a lighter portion of the fin).
The dark distal area of the second dorsal fin is also due to this portion of the fin being lighter in color.

Etymology:
The name of this species is Vanderhorstia auronotata from the Latin word "aurum" meaning gold and "nota" meaning mark, in reference to the many bright orange-yellow markings.
