Abstract

Specimens of a dwarf goby which agree well with the holotype of Gobius javanicus Bleeker, were obtained from Okinawa Prefecture.They agree also with the description and figure of Vaimosa piapensis Herre.A new Japanese name“sunagohaze”is given for this species.As stated by Aurich (1938: 160), the generic name Pseudogobius Popta should be adopted for this species, and thus, Pseudogobius javanicus (Bleeker) is appropriate scientific name.
