Indo-Pacific Sicydiine Gobies
Philippe Keith, Clara Lord, Ken Maeda
This exciting and valuable contribution summarises 20 years of extensive field studies and laboratory research on a fascinating subfamily of gobies, the Sicydiinae. Historically this group has been poorly documented leading to the misconception that relatively few species were included. However, Keith and his team of collaborators have shown that insular populations in particular have evolved a plethora of diverse forms throughout the vast Indian and Pacific oceans. More than one hundred scientific expeditions have formed a solid foundation for the revision of every genus. A special effort was made to visit and collect at nearly two-thirds of the type localities in order to “ground truth” the previously described species. In addition, nearly all the existing type specimens were re-examined, resulting in a thorough up-to-date and in-depth analysis of this interesting group.
