The dwarf galaxias, Galaxias divergens, is a galaxiid of the genus Galaxias, found only in the lower North Island and upper South Island of New Zealand. It grows to a length of up to 9 cm. More
Possibly the best populations of dwarf galaxias in Victoria occur in the upper reaches of Devilbend Creek, upstream of Devilbend Reservoir. More
pusilla, dwarf galaxias, may be capable of aestivation (Beck 1985). Neochanna cleaveri, the Australian mudfish, is another galaxiid fish that is also capable of aestivation (McDowall & Fulton 1996). Both species are found also in neighboring ecoregions. More
Because of the isolation of some populations, dwarf galaxias was a good candidate for an investigation into the species status of its populations. More
The dwarf galaxias is amber to olive green in colour with dark brown blotches on the sides and back. The belly is silvery. More
