Husbandry

Eviota geminata Greenfield & Bogorodsky, n. sp.

Found in reef slopes and coralline blocks. Collected by ichthyocide, the female from a shallow slope of a fringing reef with coral patches, 5-12 m, at the seaward side of the island, the male at about 12 m from the opposite side, with a steep slope down to 30-40 m.

Distribution and Habitat.
Presently known from two specimens collected from an unnamed island close to
Dubai, Saudi Arabia in the Red Sea, 25 km south of Duba, 3 km offshore. Specimens were collected from shelter
in reef by ichthyocide (not seen before collection). The female was collected from the seaward side of the island
from a shallow slope of a fringing reef with coral patches at its base at depths of 5–12 m, and the male specimen
was collected at a depth of about 12 m from the opposite side of the island, characterized by a steep slope down
to 30–40 m, with a reef wall and isolated coral blocks.
