Abstract

Chromogobius britoi is a recently described and poorly studied goby currently known only from the Macaronesian islands of Madeira and the Canarian archipelago. This species was captured for the first time on the Atlantic mainland coast of Europe (at Arrábida Marine Park, Portugal). The habitat, depth preferences and morphological characters of the species are revised.
