The flat-snout goby (Neogobius platyrostris), which is an endemic species for the Black Sea, inhabits in marine ecosystem. The aim of the present study is to provide data on live colouration, head lateral line system, sexual dimorphism, morphometric and meristic features and habitat preferences of this goby.
