Etymology: pellucida: Name from Latin 'atrus' for black and 'venter' for belly, referring to the black pigment in the area of the abdomen; an adjective. More on author: Larson.
Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range
Marine; reef-associated; depth range 3 - 30 m (Ref. 46956). Tropical; 22°C - 25°C (Ref. 27115); 14°N - 18°S
Western Pacific: Japan (Ryukyu Islands), Micronesia (Pohnpei, Guam, Marshall Islands, and Kiribati (Abaiang Atoll). Other country records represent Eviota atriventris.
Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 2.1 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 46956)
soft rays: 7. This species belongs to the cephalic sensory-pore group 2 with the following characters: lacking only the IT pore, has simple pectoral-fin rays, a dorsal/anal fin-ray formula almost always 8/7, and with the 5th pelvic-fin ray longer than 30% of the length of the 4th ray; however, its abdomen is not black. It is most easily confused with E. prasites and E. spilota (Ref. 89418).
Collected from 3m to at least 12 m depth (Ref. 1602). Reported to be associated with the mushroom Heliofungia actiniformis (Ref. 91291).
