The gobiid fish genus Hemigobius is reviewed and found to comprise two species, which are redescribed. The genus is considered to belong to the subfamily Gobionellinae, is closely related to the genera Mugilogobius and Pseudogobius, and can be distinguished from them by a combination of characters. Hemigobius is restricted to mangrove habitats in northern Australia and South-east Asia.
