Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 9. Schismatogobius saurii can be distinguished by the following characters: pectoral fin with 14-15 rays; pectoral fins banded with rows of dark spots; first dorsal fin membrane posterior to spine 6
connected to base of spine of second dorsal fin; Anal fin with 1 spine and 9 rays; and ventral surface of head in male whitish and slightly pigmented on the mentum and frenum or entirely brownish (vs. ventral surface of head in female whitish with a blackish or brownish mentum (Ref. 116448).
Found in streams with moderate to fast flow in shallow areas of gravel and boulders at depth of 0.4-0.6 m, usually at low altitude (< 10 m), and sometimes with Schismatogobius bruynisi (Ref. 116448).
