Bretagne and the west coast of the British Iles to the Feroe Islands, Iceland and the West Norwegian coast. Considered rare.
Distinguished from other Norwegian gobys by the fact that the 2 spine in the first dorsal finn is very long.
Slim light gray to lime green in colour.
Caught in isolated areas on sandy, silt and shellsand areas. Very little is known. Usually caught in deep water 30-330m.
We think the male guards the eggs in empty seashells.
