Blue-Spotted Mudskippers(Boleophthalmus boddarti)

Gold-Spotted Mudskipper (Periophthalmus chrysospilos)


  1. great stuff! however, i'm not so sure of the last photo which was labelled 'gold-spotted mudskipper'. I thought the GSM should have yellow / orange spots on the cheeks?

  2. TQ Anonymous. Yes,I had difficulty with the last one.
    I'm not very familiar with mudskippers.
    I will try to ID this mudskipper again.
    Any suggestions?
