The recent collection of gobiid specimens of Coryphopterus eidolon Böhlke and Robins in the Bahamas revealed a striking resemblance to species of the Indo-Pacific genus Fusigobius Whitley (1930). Suspecting that the genera Fusigobius and Coryphopterus
(Gill, 1863) are synonymous, a comparison was made of the type species and other species of these two nominal genera. Fusigobius is placed in the synonymy of Coryphopterus.
