Hello andy,

Thanks for you answer. Normally a group of french will order this fish. But I can't ind the rio copan on the map ... That's to be sure. We were not fare form Copan because we stay at Chiquimula for two nigths.

Actually, the aureus gold on Jeffs list are from Rio Bonita, or atleast he thinks they are. He has in the past had Rio Copan gold aureus though.

Hello

I think you got it right there, the one in the blue circle, as far as I remember rio Copan is also called Rio Shalagua or Rio Xalagua, hope this helps.

Jeff Rapps said Rio Bonita, whether he made a typing mistake I do not know. I can ask again if you like?

I would not expect a Rio Bonita to exist in Mexico: In Spanish Bonita/o refers to Rio, and as the word Rio is masculine, Bonito/a should also be in the masculine form. Therefore Rio Bonito is gramatically correct.

Errors such as Rio Bonita will not be made by native speakers of Spanish

Yes. I can be interesting. And if he confirm the rio bonito, I'm not sure we can consider this fish a gold form ... Now, it's perhaps something new ...
