Enneapterygius etheostomus

Enneapterygius etheostomus is a species of triplefin blenny in the genus Enneapterygius.[2] It is a temperate blenny known to inhabit rocky shores in the northwestern Pacific Ocean, and swims at a depth range of 0-21 metres. It has been described from Japan, China, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Vietnam. Male E. etheostomus can reach a maximum length of 5.5 centimetres.[2] Both juveniles and adults of the species are known to feed on benthic algae.[3]

E. etheostomus was originally described as Tripterygium etheostoma by David Starr Jordan and J.O. Snyder in 1902,[4] and was later renamed Rosenblatella etheostomus by H. Masuda et al., in 1984.[5] It was reassigned to Enneapterygius by Ronald Fricke in 1997.[6]
