Stenogobius (Insularigobius) keletaona, n. sp., a freshwater goby, is described on the basis of six specimens (4 males, 2 females) collected from streams on the island of Futuna, situated in the South Pacific between Samoa and Fiji. It differs from other species belonging to the subgenus Insularigobius by a combination of characters including the absence of a short transverse row of sensory papillae in the lower part of the preopercular, the number of scales in lateral series (48-52), the length of the second dorsal, caudal and anal fin in male, the preanal length in male, and the jaw length in female.
