Hi Ingo.

Thank you very much, we should expect to have the entire document. :) I am very interested especialment with respect to:
Based on mtDNA surveys, new species of Satanoperca are discovered, others are called into question...

There are currently 7 described species of Satanoperca (Günther, 1862):
* Satanoperca acuticeps (Heckel, 1840)
* Satanoperca daemon (Heckel, 1840)
* Satanoperca jurupari (Heckel, 1840)
* Satanoperca leucosticta (Müller & Troschel, 1848)
* Satanoperca lilith (Kullander & Ferreira, 1988)
* Satanoperca mapiritensis (Fernández-Yépez, 1950)
* Satanoperca pappaterra (Heckel, 1840)
In this study authors remove from treating the species Satanoperca mapiritensis because S. jurupari and S. mapiritensis did not show clear genetic distinction and they add 3 undescribed species: Satanoperca sp."Araguaia", S. sp."Xingu" and S. sp."Tapajós", so they are treating 9 species of genus Satanoperca.

Is this considered valid?

Still most (all I think) sites including this keep both jurupari and mapriritensis as valid and separate species?

I'm still very curious if we now should treat mapiritensis and junior synonym to jurupari.

Any thoughts?
