Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 9. Schismatogobius bussoni is distinguished by the following characters: pectoral fin usually with 15 rays; pectoral fins with a large oval transverse dorsal black band; first dorsal fin membrane posterior to spine 6 not connected to base of spine of second dorsal fin; ventral surface of head in male, and sometimes frenum, blackish; ventral surface of head in female whitish, slightly pigmented with dark dots around the mouth and usually with a blackish ring around mentum (Ref. 116448).
Inhabits streams with moderate to fast flow in shallow areas of rocks and gravel (depth 0.3-0.4 m), just above tidal influence, and sometimes with Schismatogobius bruynisi and S. saurii (Ref. 116448).
