    Abstract

    A new species of the eyeless eleotrid genus Milyeringa is described from wells sunk on Barrow Island, Western Australia.
    Milyeringa justitia n. sp. is the third species of the genus to be named. Morphological data and cytochrome c oxidase
    subunit I (COI) DNA sequence data from a wide sample of localities at which the genus occurs was used to evaluate
    relationships and species limits. Milyeringa veritas is redescribed, and M. brooksi is synonymised with M. veritas. The
    unique form and ecology of these fishes, plus the threats to their survival, warrants immediate and continuing attention in
    management.
