Acentrogobius violarisi Allen, 2015
Type locality: Alotau, Papua New Guinea, 4.8 km east of main wharf, 10º 18.256’S, 150º 24.768’E, Milne Bay Province, Papua New Guinea, depth 15 meters.
Etymology: The species is named violarisi in honour of Julius Violaris, owner of Nawe Constructions at Alotau, for allowing uninterrupted access to the survey site that yielded the new species, and for his generosity in continuing to provide an excellent home base for the MV Chertan, the live-aboard dive vessel that served as the logistic centre for the trip on which the new species was collected.
