Zarucki, M., González-Bergonzoni, I., Teixeira-de-Mello, F., Duarte, A., Serra, S., Quintans, F. & Loureiro, M. (2010). New records of freshwater fish for Uruguay. Check List. 6 (2): 191-194.

Based on National Collections records, this article presents the first report of eight freshwater fish species for Uruguay in the middle and lower Uruguay River basin, extending their current distribution: Cyanocharax alegretensis Malabarba and Weitzman, 2003; Leporinus lacustris Amaral Campos, 1945; Microglanis aff. eurystoma Malabarba and Mahler, 1998; Tatia boemia Koch and Reis, 1996; Lepthoplosternum pectorale (Boulenger, 1895); Crenicichla missioneira Lucena and Kullander, 1992; C. minuano Lucena and Kullander, 1992; Apistogramma borellii (Regan, 1906). These species were previously recorded either for upper Uruguay River or Paraná River.

This is the first record of A. borellii from the middle and lower Rio Uruguay (previously recorded in the Rio Paraná in 2005).
Change in habit, producing change of function, is the main cause of the production of change in living structure. F. Wood Jones (1953) Trends of life
