Abstract
    Sand gobies are extremely abundant in coastal waters and estuaries. Pomatoschistus lozanoi tends to be overlooked due to identification problems. This paper summarizes the characteristics to distinguish P. lozanoi from P. minutus and presents a new distinctive feature that allows identification of juveniles from 15-20 mm standard length onward. The known geographic distribution of P. lozanoi is extended northward to 53°30'N and southward to 40°N on the coast of Europe. In northern Europe P. lozanoi seems better adapted to the estuarine habitat than previously thought.
