Info

Iwata, Hosoya & Niimura, 1998

Special thanks for the first photo of Echinogobius hayashii to Dr. Fenton Walsh, Australia.

The goby was named in honor of Masayoshi Hayashi.

A pale greyish sand-dwelling goby with a row of large brown spots along the midsides, smaller black spots on the fins and upper sides, a blue-edged pink to reddish bar from the back of the head to the cheek, and pale bluish spots and lines on the head and anterior body.
Source: Fishes of australia

The goby lives reef-associated in clear waters with fast tidal current on sandy bottoms in a depth range 1 - 20 m in the Indo-West-Pacific (West-Australia and Japan)

It retreats in burrows made possibly by sea cucumbers or polychaetes.
