Awaous Valenciennes, 1837 

Gobius gutum Hamilton, 1822  , from India has been considered a junior synonym of Glossogobius giuris  by Kottelat (2013). However, the original description, clearly indicates that the upper jaw overhangs the lower jaw, unlike Glossogobius  . Hora (1929) published Hamilton’s original drawing of Gobius gutum  and it is clearly a species of Awaous  . Britz (2019) provided the image in colour and added the type locality as Podma River. Plamoottil (2016) recorded and figured the species as Awaous gutum  .

Gobius neglectus Jerdon, 1949  . Although not treated by Koumans (1953) the species was originally compared with species of Glossogobius  . The species was described as having a sloping snout and an eye going into head length 5 times. The counts are given as D 6 I,11 and anal I,10 or 11. Under Gobius kokius Jerdon (1849)  describes the snout as being in line with the back and D I,9 anal I,8. That species is consistent with the “giuris” head form, but neglectus  is a closer match to Awaous  , although it is reported from near the mountain and may belong elsewhere, but is clearly not a Glossogobius  .
