Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 9. Schismatogobius mondo can be distinguished by the following characters: pectoral fin with 14-15 rays; pectoral fins partly crossed by broad black band and few rows of black spots; first dorsal fln membrane posterior to spine 6 not connected to base of spine of second dorsal fin; anal fin I,9; body with three transverse black bands; male with ventral surface of head and frenum blackish; and female with ventral surface of head whitish with a blackish border (Ref. 116768).
Occurs in streams with moderate to fast flow in shallow areas of rocks and gravel (depth 0.3-0.6 m) just above tidal influence with Schismatogobius bruynisi, S. tiola, and S . vanuatuensis, in the same habitat (Ref. 116768).
