Abstract

Recent research studied the complexity of the taxonomy of the genus Eleotris (Teleostei: Eleotridae) highlighting the presence of cryptic species in the Indo-Pacific area. Eleotris species are one of the most common fish in lower and medium parts of insular freshwater streams. Here we studied specimens from several localities in the Indian Ocean and we described three new species (Eleotris diamsoi, E. sahanaensis, and E. valadei), and we redescribed E. pellegrini Maugé 1984, E. vomerodentata Maugé, 1984 and E. soaresi Playfair, 1867. A key for Eleotris species from West Indian Ocean is provided.
