Comments: Available information for P. semilunaris confirms that: i) Tubenose gobies can have a significant negative impact on aquatic invertebrate density and community composition (Mikl et al., 2017) and some native species may display a significant shift in habitat choice in co-occurrence with tubenose goby (Van Kessel et al., 2011).
