A new species of Schismatogobius, a freshwater goby, is described from Halmahera (Indonesia). It differs from other species belonging to the genus by a high percentage of genetic divergence in partial COI gene (652 bp) and by several characters, including the number of pectoral fin rays, the pattern of the ventral surface of the head, the pectoral fin colour pattern and the jaw length/head length ratio of male and female.
