Distribution Countries | FAO areas | Ecosystems | Occurrences | Point map | Introductions | Faunafri

Asia and Oceania: Japan southward to the Philippines, Indonesia, New Guinea and Australia. Reported from Africa: south to Coffee Bay, South Africa (Ref. 2798) and Seychelles (Ref. 4343). Widely distributed over the West tropical Pacific, from Japan to the Philippines, Indonesia, New-Guinea, North of Australia, Vanuatu and New Caledonia (Ref. 87781). The Redigobius genus is actually being revised and especially the bikolanus group that should be splitted into several taxa, leading to a revision of the group distribution also (Ref. 87781).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults inhabit creeks, rivers and brackish estuaries (Ref. 2847, 44894). Found in tidal streams (Ref. 4343, 44894). Sometimes seen upstream a short distance from the tidal zone. Feed on small fishes and invertebrates. Not seen in markets (Ref. 12693).

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=0.00832 (0.00371 - 0.01866), b=3.07 (2.88 - 3.26), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.43 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Very high.
