Never mind:

Staeck, Wolfgang. 2003. "Cichliden Lexikon, Teil 3: Südamerikanische Zwergbuntbarsche". Dähne Verlag, Ettlingen, Germany. v. 3; 219 (p. 87) as Apistogramma sp 'Rio Guaporé, Apistogramma sp. cf. staecki "Guaporé", A193

According to Koslowski (2002), who discussed the species under the name Apistogramma cf. staecki “Guaporé” (A 193 in DATZ book), this fish was first discussed as Apistogramma sp. "Rio Guaporé" by Linke & Staeck (1997) "Amerikanische Cichliden I: Kleine Buntbarsche, 6th Ed". Tetra Verlag Melle (Germany). 256 pp. I don't own the 6th ed. of Linke & Staeck, so I can't verify Koslowski's statetment. If valid, then both of these publications discussed A. sororcula prior to Staeck (2003).

Dear all,
Yes, I can confirm that A. sororcula was first mentioned by Linke & Staeck (1997) in "Amerikanische Cichliden I: Kleine Buntbarsche” (6th Ed) as Apistogramma sp. (Rio Guaporé).
Best, Cichla
