Help with a Goby


This goby was observed in a small tidal pool in Playa del Carmen this June. I have a feeling its a member of the Frillfin group (antilliensis, soporator,etc), but I'm hoping that someone might narrow it down for me. Many thx in advance.


Hi Jeff, 

I think identifying this one to species would require a better side photo, the pattern difference between frillfins is minute and key.  If I had to guess I'd say Checkerboard, B. lacertus.


As always Carlos, I cant

As always Carlos, I cant thank you enough. I'll scroll through the rest of my pics for a side pic and compare.
