Re: New species: Vieja coatlicue :-)

Thank you, Philippe, for the update. The short life of a cichlid species taxon,… !? That it happens that species taxa shortly after their description are recognized as synonyms by competing authors is often conducted by emotional-driven work. So, it would be good to read a work by independent resear...

Re: New species: Vieja coatlicue :-)

Actually the name is not valid right now. The current publication doesn’t fullfill the regulations of the code.
Nevertheless, I think it is the ‘species’ which is known as “sp. ‘Coatzacoalcos‘ “.
I would like to read opinions by experts of these fishes.

Very interesting paper. I just wonder if it is ‘Laetacara dorsigera’ or (more likely) ‘L. dorsiger’.

@Rico: Thanks, it makes sense.
Anyway, I think C. saxatilis and C. vaillanti could be synonyms.

Re: Redescription of Vieja hartwegi (Taylor & Miller 1980)

Thank you.
Yes, it is very possible that these specimens are hybrids. The 'rheophilic morph' looks very similar to the hybrids between grammodes and hartwegi pictured by Buchhauser (DCG-Informationen, 1999).
