Rio Danli

Post by stomper160 » Mon Jun 10, 2013 6:23 pm

Anyone have any info or best guesses on fish found in Rio Danli besides the HRP? I would assume a parachromis is found in the area.

Hi,
not sure where the Rio Danli per se is, but I sampled several creeks in the Danli area a few years ago. Besides HRPs, we collected Parachromis managuensis, Parachromis dovii, Astatheros longimanus, Amphilophus hogaboomorum, Poecilia cf. salvatoris, Poeciliopsis cf. turrubarensis, Rhamdia laticauda, Astyanax aeneus, and Synbranchus marmoratus.
Cheers, m

So does Rio Danli not exist? A google search indicates Danli is a small town near the Nicaraguan boarder, and Rio Los Almendros is nearby. For such a popular little fish I would think there would be information on the collection point.

The problem with stream names in Central America is that they're often not formally named and people refer to them by the name of proximate towns. I.e., the same stream might have different names as you travel along it. That's why it is important to georeference collection localities.
