    Venom systems have evolved on multiple occasions across the animal kingdom, and they can act as key adaptations to protect animals from predators [].Consequently, venomous animals serve as models for a rich source of mimicry types, as non-venomous species benefit from reductions in predation risk by mimicking the coloration, body shape, and/or movement of toxic counterparts [2, 3, 4, 5].Cited by: The 3 subgenera and 25 species of Indo-Pacific blenniid fishes of the fangblenny genus Meiacanthus are differentiated in a key. Meiacanthus urostigma, new species, is described from the Surin Islands and northern Sumatra. This region of the Indian Ocean appears to be a localized area of endemism, attributable to glacial sea-level lowering events.

The two species in Adelotremus are quite small; only about and inch and a half long and unlike some other blenny species, appear to live at varying depths. The fearless fangblennies or sabre-tooth blennies of the genus Meiacanthus, are unique among fishes in having a pair of large grooved canines in the lower jaw (dentary) that secrete venom like a hypodermic syringe.

The fangs are used for protection and intraspecific interactions, not for feeding. William Smith-Vaniz’s monograph, The Saber-toothed Blennies, Tribe Nemophini, was a must-read when we started diving in the Indo-Pacific many years ago, but it was the cover of his publication (see below) showing the recurved canine teeth of the lower jaw, that turned these cute little reef fish into the stuff of nightmares and inspired my quest to see them for myself.
