Goby from the Dutch North Sea

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I was in the water with a very long focal length to make head shots from gobies in Zeeland (Dutch North Sea).
Luckily, I made some bad photos too, with something more than just a gobies head - and I hope that there's enough to see for an ID.
My guess is Pomatoschistus pictus, but it could be Pomatoschistus minutus as well. Another guess from somebody else was
Gobius niger, but for me the colours doesn't fit.
Any help is appreciated!

Cheers,

waso

Hi Waso,

I dive there too. It is  Pomatoschistus minutus.  Pomatoschistus pictus would have had dark dots on the membrane at the base of the first dorsal fin. Your second photo makes the difference.

Thanks a lot!
I didn't expect an answer anymore.
