Apistogramma panduro-ID confirmation

Post by Colby Dixon » Wed Jul 29, 2009 6:28 pm

Hey folks,

The Cichlidbase project needs your help! While Alex Calder is working on version 3.0 (Blog) we are attempting to positively ID and validate suspected ID's of many of our Cichlid photographs. Juan has graciously agreed to let us use this Forum's Expertise in verifying our photos. Any and all help is appreciated. All photos by Alex Calder.

Thank You,
Colby Dixon and the entire Cichlidbase team.

This fish was labeled as an older female Apistogramma panduro

You must see the precaudal spot. Panduro have triangular spot, nijsseni oval.

It is a very old male A. panduro. Not the slightly elongated and serrated anterior dorsal spines. This is a feature of A. panduro males. A. nijsseni males have an even, non-serrated anterior dorsal.
