A New Crenicichla Species

Post by Mark Smith » Fri Jan 30, 2009 8:56 am

Casciotta, J & A Almiron, 2008. Crenicichla tesay, a new species of cichlid (Perciformes: Labroidei) from the rio Iguazu basin in Argentina. Revue Suisse de Zoologie 115: 651–659.

Abstract

Crenicichla tesay sp. n. differs from its congeners by the following combination of characters: posterior border of preopercle serrated, 48-59 scales on E1 row, snout length 2.6-2.8 times in head length, presence of conspicuous suborbital stripe, flanks with 4 to 6 blotches below the upper lateral line, posteriormost blotch extending on caudal peduncle. Colour pattern with numerous irregularly scattered dots, and absence of vertical stripes on flanks.

Technically published perhaps in January 2009, but with a 2008 publication date.

27 species total for 2008.

1rst cichlid described in 2009 in Schraml website : http://www.worldfish.de/sci.htm
The publication is dated in 2008 but is not available before 2009 on the web (not mentionned in the web site of Revue Suisse de Zoologie)
Was it published on paper before the end of the year ????

So 2009 must be the valid year ????



Waiting for Yann's answer (I suppose nobody has the pdf file for the time being)

This may be one of the problems with journals that publish their work late and not on time, particularly at the end of a year.

Is it really a problem though? Im new to the taxa scene, and can't see where it would make a difference.

The moment a paper comes off the printing press describing a new species, that is the actual time/date that the fish is formally described. So, even if the paper has a publication date of 2008 on it, but is actually printed in 2009, then the description became valid in 2009 and not 2008. Not the biggest of situations to be made aware of, but one worth pointing out.

Usually it is certainly no big problem. But the correct date of publication can be crucial for the validity of the taxon in the case, that someone at about the same time would describe the same species under another name (synonymy) ore, indeed, another species under the same name (homonymy).

Colour pattern with numerous irregularly scattered dots, and absence of vertical stripes on flanks.

distribution and habitat (from publication):
Crenicichla tesay inhabits streams tributaries of the río Iguazú above Iguazú falls in Argentina. The depth of the streams was variable, averaging about 80 cm. The bottom was composed of mud, sand and mostly stones, and the stream has falls with pools, with clear, rapidly flowing water. Some areas had scarce submerged vegetation.
