Info

Trimma kardium
Winterbottom, Erdmann & Cahyani, 2015
Heart pygmy goby

Occurs and collected from large coral rubble pieces lying on soft bottoms below the reef slope. Solitary and only single specimens were collected at any given time. Apparently exhibits a similar behaviour to T. meranyx which co-occurs with this species, and has a similar depth distribution
