Eucyclogobius kristinae Swift et al., 2016

  • Holotype: LACM 57334–2.
  • Paratypes: LACM 57334–1 (8), 57333–1 (11), 42692–2 (7).

Type locality: California, San Diego County, coastal lagoon at mouth of Las Flores Canyon (Las Pulgas Canyon on some maps), about 15 km northwest of Oceanside, centered on 32°17’25.29”N; 117°27’51.40”W.

Etymology: The species name is feminine in honor of Kristina D. Y. Louie whose untimely death in 2004 cut short a promising career dedicated to conservation genetics. Her Ph.D. dissertation and associated work contributed greatly to the authors studies of eastern Pacific phylogeography, as well as to a novel re-interpretation of the placement of Wallace’s Line across the islands of Indonesia.
