Original in Japanese with English abstract
Six specimens (25.2–50.0 mm standard length) of Luciogobius yubai Ikeda, Tamada and Hirashima, 2019 were collected from gravel beach in Kagoshima Bay, Kyushu, Japan. Luciogobius yubai has previously been known only from several localities, viz., Shizuoka (Izu Peninsula), Wakayama, Niigata (Sado Island), Nagasaki (Fukue Island), and Hyogo (Ie Islands) prefectures, Japan. Thus, the Kagoshima Bay specimens represent the southernmost records for the species. In addition, ecological notes on L. yubai, including habitate and feeding habits are provided in this paper.
