Possibly Nesogobius sp.? Small sand gobies in left over puddles on the mudflat in low tide. Camouflaged perfectly and flattened themselves when still to reduce their cast shadow.

While on a research trip in Coffin Bay, we were using the Ekman sand grab from the boat to collect sediment samples 10+ metres down. And we hauled this guy back up (bigger than the grab itself). It was okay and successfully released back into the water.

Found buried in sand near mangroves at Port Broughton. Appears too triangular to be Katelysia spp. and too rough to be Anapella cycladea (both of which I am quite familiar with), but not 100% sure.
