Amphidromous species of the Glossogobius celebius complex found in lower reaches rivers of the eastern Indian Ocean and the western Pacific Ocean are reviewed. Glossogobius celebius is not as widely distributed as previously thought and is confined to the eastern Indian Ocean to eastern Indonesia. Three species are described as new species from Australia, New Guinea and various localities in the western Pacific. The species are distinguished on the basis of coloration, anal fin-ray and predorsal scale counts, head pores and papilla patterns.
