  1. Fish communities on tropical deep reefs are dominated by species that belong to families primarily composed of shallow-water species. Collections of deep-reef fishes via submersibles have allowed us to include these deep-reef species in molecular phylogenies, providing insights into the timing and frequency of invasions from shallow to deep reefs. Here we provide evidence of a new deep-reef invasion in the tribe Gobiosomatini in the family Gobiidae (gobies). We describe two new species, one of which belongs to a new genus, and incorporate these taxa into a time-calibrated molecular phylogeny of Gobiosomatini to show that, collectively, these two genera represent a previously unreported independent invasion on to deep reefs that occurred approximately 20–30 million years ago. These new taxa are readily distinguished from related genera and species by a combination of live coloration, pelvic-fin morphology, meristic characters, head-pore patterns and other osteological characters. We discuss the relevance of these two new species to the systematics of the tribe Gobiosomatini and include a comparison to all known genera in the tribe.

  2. We describe a new species of New Guinea Worm-Eating Snake (Elapidae: Toxicocalamus ) from a specimen in the reptile collection of the Papua New Guinea National Museum and Art Gallery. Toxicocalamus longhagen sp. nov. can be easily distinguished from other species of this genus by the presence of paired subcaudals, a preocular scale unfused from the prefrontal scale, a prefrontal distinct from the internasal scale that contacts the supralabials, a single large posterior temporal and two postocular scales. The new taxon is currently known only from one specimen, which was collected from Mt. Hagen Town in Western Highlands Province, Papua New Guinea in 1967. The new species was originally identified as T. loriae , but the unique head scalation and postfrontal bone morphology revealed through micro-computed tomography scanning easily distinguish the new species from T. loriae sensu stricto . This is the first species of this genus described from Western Highlands Province.
