Tarndale bully

Gobiomorphus alpinus (Stokell, 1962)
R.M. McDowall

Although the Tarndale bully is hard to visually distinguish from the other bully species, its location is a dead giveaway. Found in only a few small sub-alpine tarns in the headwaters of the Clarence and Wairau Rivers, it lives in splendid  isolation in this remote region of Marlborough. The bully’s name comes from its location - that part of Molesworth Station formerly known as Tarndale Station.
