Fig 1
DESCRIPTION: A small to medium-sized blenny. The continuous dorsal fin that starts spiny and becomes softer towards the tail and the relatively large dorsal fins are diagnostic. The lack of tentacles over the eye and the greenish body with black specklings confirms the ID. DISTRIBUTION: Common on all rocky coasts. HABITAT: Beneath rocks when tide is out and in rock pools. Also within crevices at high tide from which they may be tempted with bait. BEST TIME TO SEE: All year round.
