The poso bungu (
amadi) is a critically endangered (possibly extinct) species of fish in the Gobiidae family. It is endemic to Lake Poso in Sulawesi, Indonesia. Although sometimes placed in its own genus "Weberogobius", recent authorities often include it in "
latifrons is a species of goby endemic to the Malili Lake system (consisting of Matano, Towuti and smaller lakes) in central Sulawesi, Indonesia generally being found in extremely shallow waters. This species can reach a length of TL.
is a genus of fish in the family Gobiidae. They are found in fresh, brackish and marine water of the Indo-Pacific region. Several of the freshwater species have highly restricted distributions.
sarasinorum, Sarasin's goby, is a species of goby endemic to Lake Poso in Sulawesi, Indonesia. This species can reach a length of TL. It is important to local commercial fisheries.
adeia is a species of goby endemic to Lake Matano on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi where it inhabits areas with a number of shells of the gastropod "Tylomelania gemmifera" in which it seeks shelter. This species can reach a length of TL.
Together with the other lakes in the Malili Lake system, Towuti has a large number of endemic fishes (Telmatherinid sail-fin silversides, "Glossogobius" and "
" gobies, "Nomorhamphus" halfbeaks and "Oryzias" ricefishes), "Caridina" shrimps, Parathelphusid crabs ("Nautilothelphusa", "Parathelphusa" and "Syntripsa") and "Tylomelania" snails.
The lake contains various fish, including the eel "Anguilla marmorata" which migrates between the lake and the sea, and 11 fish species that are endemic to the lake, notably buntingi ricefish ("Adrianichthys", "Oryzias nebulosus", "O. nigrimas" and "O. orthognathus"), gobies ("
amadi" and "M. sarasinorum"), and the halfbeak "Nomorhamphus celebensis". These endemics are all highly threatened; in some cases possibly already extinct. One of the reasons for the drastic decline of the native fish are introduced, non-native species, particularly Mozambique tilapia and common carp.
Sulawesi also has several endemic species of freshwater fish, such as those in the genus "Nomorhamphus", a species flock of viviparous halfbeaks containing 12 species that only are found on Sulawesi (others are from the Philippines). In addition to "Nomorhamphus", the majority of Sulawesi's 70+ freshwater fish species are ricefishes, gobies ("Glossogobius" and "
") and Telmatherinid sail-fin silversides. The last family is almost entirely restricted to Sulawesi, especially the Malili Lake system, consisting of Matano and Towuti, and the small Lontoa (Wawantoa), Mahalona and Masapi. Another unusual endemic is "Lagusia micracanthus" from rivers in South Sulawesi, which is the sole member of its genus and among the smallest grunters. The gudgeon "Bostrychus microphthalmus" from the Maros Karst is the only described species of cave-adapted fish from Sulawesi, but an apparently undescribed species from the same region and genus also exists.
Lake Matano is home to many species of endemic fish and other animals (e.g. "Caridina" shrimps, Parathelphusid crabs and "Tylomelania" snails) as well as many plants. The endemic fishes of Matano have been compared to the species swarms of the Rift Valley Lakes of Africa. While not as diverse, they are thought to have all arisen from a single ancestor species and diversified into numerous different species, which now fill many of the previously vacant ecological niches, as can be seen in the family Telmatherinidae. Endemic and near-endemic fishes from other families include "Glossogobius matanensis", "
adeia", "Nomorhamphus weberi" and "Oryzias matanensis". Many of the endemics are seriously threatened due to pollution and predation/competition from a wide range of introduced fishes, including flowerhorn cichlids.
