Abstract

Pomatoschistus pictus is a coastal and estuarine species that inhabits shallow gravel and sand ­substrate areas of the eastern Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea (Miller 1986). Studies on P. pictus show that, like in other species of this genus (Malavasi et al. 2008), males produce sounds during courtship and agonistic contexts (Amorim and Neves 2007, 2008).
