Hookcheek Dwarfgoby - a new Australian record

In the lead-up to Christmas, I'm very pleased to let you know about another new fish record for Australia.
Anne Hoggett, Director of the Lizard Island Research Station, photographed a small goby in February 2018 and uploaded the observation in June 2020.
There was a fair amount of discussion about the identification of the fish in Anne's observation. https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/48519678
South Australian Museum fish guy @rfoster was the first to identify the fish as Eviota ancora. Australian Museum Senior Fellow and goby expert Doug Hoese confirmed the identification.
In addition to this record from Lizard Island, the species is also known from Japan, Indonesia and the Philippines. View the species factsheet at Fishbase, https://fishbase.net.br/summary/Eviota-ancora.html.
Anne's observation of the Hookcheek Dwarfgoby, along with hundreds of other records can also be viewed in the Lizard Island Field Guide. http://lifg.australianmuseum.net.au/Group.html?groupId=6xrC9lae
