These were sold as Lentipes Ikeae; however, afyer counting rays, etc. I think they are Armatus. What do you think?

Hi trustemedia!
I'm sorry for the late reply.

According to this book(Indo-Pacific Sicydiine Gobies: biodiversity, life traits and conservation).
And this page is useful.
https://borea.mnhn.fr/sites/default/fil ... ntipes.pdf

◆Lentipes ikeae
Pectoral fins with 16-17 rays

●Lentipes armatus
Pectoral fins with 17-19 rays

I can count 19 rays with pectoral fin in your picture.
I think that Lentipes in your photo is L.armatus.

You can see lot of photos in this website.
