calumia eilperinae

Painting of Calumia eilperinae

This is my most recent illustration – a watercolor and gouache painting of a newly described Indonesian fish. It is based upon the detailed descriptions, measurements, and (with permission) color photographs found in the 2010 paper by Gerald R. Allen and Mark V. Erdmann in the journal aqua: “Two new species of Calumia (Teleostei: Eleotridae) from West Papua, Indonesia.” As far as I know, it’s the only existing illustration of the species at this time.
