Abstract

A new species of freshwater clingfish is described. The species differs from other known freshwater species of the genus Gobiesox by its morphometries, morphology, tongue position, insertion and number of teeth and by the closer position of the anus to the anal fin. This is the seventh known freshwater species of clingfish of the genus in North America, the first in the Nearctic and the second endemic freshwater fish from the Peninsula of Baja California.
