In June 2018 two specimens of recently described fish Spelegobius llorisi Kovačić, Ordines et Schliewen, 2016, were collected at Hvar Island in the central Adriatic Sea at 52 m depth during a SCUBA diving fieldwork, aimed to quantitatively study fishes of rhodolith beds. The findings represent the third known record of this species and the first for the Adriatic Sea. The complete and intact material enabled a study of colouration and morphological details not recorded in the damaged type material from a beam trawl.
