What Species of Clingfish?


Hello everyone,

I found this clingfish at Maho Bay St. John USVI. in about 3 feet of water hiding in some leaf litter on the sea bottom.

Looks very much like the Northern Clingfish (From the Claifornia coast)  Gobiesox maeandricus but this one has a white tip on his tail (and is in the wrong location).

Any ideas?

Island Barb-Just a snorkeler

My personal guess

I'm thinking perhaps Gobiesox punctulatus?
