Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Perciformes (Perch-likes) > Gobiidae (Gobies) > Gobiinae
Etymology: Gobiodon: Latin, gobius = gudgeon + Greek, odous = teeth (Ref. 45335);  prolixus: Name from a Latin word meaning stretched out long, referring to the very elongate body of this species in comparison to its congeners..   More on author: Winterbottom.

Environment / Climate / Range Ecology

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 10; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 8. Distinguished by having five pale blue, thin, vertical lines on the head and pectoral base on a brown to pale brown background; a slim to somewhat tubular body shape, especially in adults (body depth at pelvic-spine origin 27-36% SL: distance between the anterior base of the first dorsal-fin spine and the anterodorsal base of the first pectoral- fin ray 41.3-50.4% HL); a short straight groove may be present between the medial margin of the interopercle and the isthmus, but its presence or absence seems to depend on position of suspensorium when preserved (Re. 55666).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01995 (0.00906 - 0.04395), b=3.01 (2.83 - 3.19), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
