Chris Barrett Does anyone have a relatively decent photo of the 2-spot goby (Gobiusculus flavescens) and/or butterfish (Pholis gunnellus) that you would be so kind as to let me use (with full credit to you) in a presentation that I'll be giving in Cork at the end of the month? Many thanks in advance

Erling Svensen No problem. Just sen an email to me that can receive big emails and I can send you pictures. my email is esvens@online.no

João Pedro Silva Chris Barrett, I've got a few. Not top quality but "presentable": http://www.flickr.com/photos/jpsilva1971/tags/gobiusculusflavescens/

Tony Gilbert Chris, I've quite a number of Butterfish images, as they are very common around N. Wales. Also have some 2-spot-goby shots. Are you doing a talk to a dive club - cos I may know some of them :-)

Erling Svensen This is a two spotted gobi, Gobiusculus flavescens.

Peter H van Bragt We have this Goby since a few years as a common species on the Dutch coast too. They came about with the increase of introduced exotic and invasive large big brown algae in between wich they seem to thrive. Actively swimming in summertime but at the end of fall when water temps drop they all tend to settle near the bottom looking as if they are getting into some state of hibernation.
