Re: Chindongo sp. 'elongatus thumbi'?

Yes correct, Tawil has now proposed many species in Chindongo, the reference is given in the Nomenclature history in the profiles.I talked with Patrick and Ad who are the Malawi / Tanganyika authorities for the CRC and both agree on these species in Chindongo. Ad has made taxonomic examinations of s...

Re: New species: Vieja coatlicue :-)

I don't think the article is published, since the magazine does not have ISSN that I can see. Also, I noticed there is no ZooBank registration. The species refers to what was previously known as Vieja sp. 'coatzacoalcos'. The type locality was set at a small tributaire of the Uxpanapa river at the t...

Re: Chindongo sp. 'elongatus thumbi'?

Correct, that is an opinion, comments is intended for that. We need some publication making the formal proposal to justify the movement

Re: new Petrochromis species

Correct, they are not available (not published according to the criteria of the code). So we should not use the new names in our catalog until they are formally published. This will hopefully (soon, now that the names are dropped) be the case, but nobody knows. Remember "Gymnogeophagus arcoiris". Y...

Re: new Petrochromis species

Thank you so much Ingo, the article is a pre-print and not yet peer reviewed, printed in a pre-print server. So I assume the taxa are not available yet. I have provisionally added the names to the profiles in the site nonetheless

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

That is a very interesting view! Thank you Rico! They have collected eight specimens of the form in several areas upstream from La Angostura dam, which would indicate it is a common hybrid there.

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

Very likely with time it will keep differing and isolating in reproduction, that is a way for new species to develop, exploiting niches. I thought that it was probably rapids that had isolated V. hartwegi and V. breidohri, if it were so, are now rapids isolating a new species? or was it a geographic...

Re: Question on joining the ACA and content availability

I didn't see this question until now, since it is posted in the ACA forum. Yes the Cichlid Room Companion has that information for every species with published profiles, now over a thousand, if that is what you need then a subscription to the CRC is what you want. https://www.cichlidae.com/membershi...

To tell you the truth, I don't even know if the contest is still on. I wouldn't like to think that they would just leave us hanging.
I will contact Scott who is the organizer.. I bet you will win the first three places :-)

Re: Trivia option to trade species

It would be nice if there were an option to add a species to the buy/sell list from the trivia screen for each species. That would make searching for species much easier than the single dropdown menu with all fish on the buy/sell portal. Thanks just recently the trading system has pick up in use. Y...

Apparently those fish were collected in Rio Panuco near Mazatlan by Rusty Wessel in 2009. Rio Panuco is a tributary of Rio Presidio.

Re: Labeotropheus simoneae

The decision that the fish you have described is indeed the same species as the one earlier described is a taxonomic decision. The Code doesn't deal with those decisions. I understand, but the code establish the subjective synonymy of the species and for this to happen somebody has to declare it, i...

Willem Heijns wrote:I have to object here. Synonymity is about the validity of names and as such a taxonomic issue not regulated by the ICZN.
So, if I give a name to a fish previously described (complying with the code rules), the synonymy is not regulated by the ICZN?
