Very special thanks for the first photo of Emblemaria piratica to Dr. Gerry R. Allen, he has taken this picture of a male Sailfin signal blenny at Panama, Eastern Pacific.
Sailfin signal blenny is endemic to the Eastern Pacific, and is found from from Mazatlan, Mexico to southern Panama.
This blenny is a demersal species and inhabits empty mollusc shells on sand-rubble substrate in a depthrange of 5 to 30 meters.
