Offering Sicyopus exallisquamulus (Red lipstick Goby).

Described from the island of Halmahera in the Maluku Islands (also referred to as the Moluccan or Spice Islands) archipelago, Indonesia. It may have a wider range within the Maluku region and Indonesia in general since specimens collected on the island of Java are very similar indeed, for example (see images). Substrates are normally of bedrock with scattered jumbles of rocks and boulders, and while riparian, stream-side vegetation and submerged leaf litter are common aquatic plants aren’t usually present. The most favourable habitats all contain very clear, well-oxygenated water which, allied with the tropical sun, facilitates the development of a rich biofilm carpeting submerged surfaces.
