Hemiramphus praematurus Schindler, 1930

Schindleria praematura, Schindler's fish is a species of neotenic goby which was formerly placed in the monogeneric family Schindleriidae but which is currently classified within the Gobiidae.[4] It is associated with reefs and has an Indo-Pacific distribution from South Africa and Madagascar to Hawaii and the sea mounts of the South Pacific.[3] The generic name and the common name honour the German zoologist Otto Schindler (1906–1959) who described the species.[5]
