A new species of dwarfgoby, Eviota imitata n. sp., is described from Raja Ampat, West Papua, Indonesia, based on the holotype and 8 paratypes
The new species is currently known only from Raja Ampat, Indonesia. The species was observed and collected from a current-swept rubble field ranging from 8–12 m deep. Individuals were typically perched on small 5–10 cm long pieces of coralline-algae-encrusted coral rubble, and would quickly retreat under the rubble when approached.
