Dear all,
well, the printed issue with the article is now available. ( http://link.springer.com/article/10.100 ... 014-1891-8 )
It means that the new name Nosferatu and the species name H. tepehua is nomenclaturically available in 2015, only: Hydrobiologia April 2015, Volume 748, Issue 1, pp 201-231.
By the way: The designation of a neotype for Herichthys deppii is not valid.
Best, Cichla

Morphometric variation of the Herichthys bartoni (Bean, 1892) species group (Teleostei: Cichlidae): How many species comprise H. labridens (Pellegrin, 1903)? http://www.scielo.br/pdf/ni/v13n1/1679- ... -00061.pdf

"..., we rejected the recent proposal of De la Maza-Benignos ..., who suggested that the species included in the H. labridens species group must be segregated into a new genus named Nosferatu because the morphological characters that support both genera are also present in species of the other genus (PĂ©rez-Miranda et al. in prep.)."

the genus Herichthys comprises a well-supported monophyletic group (BPP=1.0) and that this genus includes two well-supported clades: the group of species related to H. cyanoguttatus (BPP = 1.0) and the group of species related to H. bartoni analyzed in this study
Depending where you put the cursor, Nosferatu is valid or not...

Yes, Philippe, that's very true. This group represents a separate clade. However, not every single clade needs to be named.
Cheers, cichla
