Coryphopterus glaucofraenum, the bridled goby, is a species of goby native to the Western Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea from North Carolina to Brazil. It can be found on reefs at depths of from 2 to 45 metres (6.6 to 147.6 ft) in areas of white sand. This species can reach a length of 8 centimetres (3.1 in) TL. It occasionally makes its way into the aquarium trade.[1]
