New species of Gymnogeophagus from Argentina described New species of Gymnogeophagus from Argentina described
创建者 Juan Miguel Artigas Azas

A new species of Gymnogeophagus, G. jaryi from the middle Parana River basin in Misiones, Argentina has been described by Felipe Alonso and a group of ten persons in the journal Plos One. The new species is diagnosed by meristic and color pattern differences with other species of the genus. It is established to be the sister species of G. caaguazuensis from which it differs by a longer caudal peduncle, caudal fin not lyrate, central portion of scales on dorsal portion of trunk light iridescent blue and by white spots in soft portion of dorsal fin in adult males. The specific name given to the new species jaryi means grandmother in Guarani and has been “dedicated to the Non-Governmental Organization of “Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo”, created in 1977 whose objective is to locate and restore to their legitimate families all the children disappeared by the last Argentine dictatorship”. The new species can also be found in adjacent areas in Paraguay.

New species of Gymnogeophagus from Uruguay described New species of Gymnogeophagus from Uruguay described
创建者 Juan Miguel Artigas Azas

A new species of Gymnogeophagus from Uruguay has been described by Andréia Turcati, Wilson Sebastián Serra-Alanis & Luiz R. Malabarba in the journal Neotropical Ichthyology. The new species owns somewhat hyperthrophied lips like the related G. labiatus and G. lacustris but it is diagnosed to differ from those species by the lack of an oblique bar from the eye to the dorsal-fin origin and by the color pattern of the caudal, dorsal and anal fins with dots (versus without them). The name given to this species is Gymnogeophagus peliochelynion with the specific name derived from Greek and meaning "black and blue lips". The new species is known from the río Arapey Grande drainage, a tributary of the lower río Uruguay basin.

Nomenclature changes in two Central American cichlids Nomenclature changes in two Central American cichlids
创建者 Juan Miguel Artigas Azas

A new paper by Rico Morgenstern brings to light facts that force important nomenclature changes for two well-known Central American cichlid species: Parachromis friedrichsthalii and P. loisellei. The paper details the circumstances and presents an examination of the fish collections made by Emanuel Ritter von Friedrichsthal in Central America between 1838 and 1841. The most important results establish that the fish we now know as Parachromis loisellei was in fact previously described as P. friedrichsthalii, a name we should now use when referring to this species. The fish hitherto known as Parachromis friedrichsthalii should now be called P. multifasciatus. The name Parachromis loisellei falls now in junior synonymy with P. friedrichsthalii. These changes may create confusion but get use closer to have a sounder picture of Central American cichlids taxonomy.

新种已知仅来自赞比亚水域,与同域的H. stenosoma扁身黥面武士栖息于深水区的含氧层。本种在1998年时被Ad Konings (埃德.康宁斯)首次鉴别,并宣称其可能是H. stenosoma扁身黥面武士的一个表型变异种。其后Mark Smith (马克.斯密斯)在2007年把其视作一个潜在的未描述种,并命名为Hemibates sp. ‘stenosoma zambia’赞比亚扁身黥面武士。

现今对其进行了科学描述,并以Ad Konings的名字命名,以表示对其多年来为慈鲷学普及与科学研究作出杰出贡献的敬意,他的这些贡献一直鼓舞着众多的慈鲷人。本种与H. stenosoma扁身黥面武士的特征区别明显:更大的成鱼尺寸,更长和更倾斜的吻部,另外还有体侧中央的垂直条纹(H. stenosoma扁身黥面武士的是一些随机的大斑点)。.

创建者 Juan Miguel Artigas Azas

Eight authors seniored by Uwe Römer have authored the recently published description of Apistogramma megastoma in the journal Vertebrate Zoology. The new species was previously known as Apistogramma sp. 'kelleri' or Apistogramma sp. 'diamante' and was discovered by Johan Egberts in a small tributary of the Peruvian Amazonian near Leticia, Peru, country to which the new species is endemic as far as it is currently known. The specific name megasema is Greek for “big mouth”, a trait which enables it to perform mouth-brooding behavior and swallow relatively large prey. The new Apistogramma is the second mouth-brooding Apistogramma (after A. barlowi) that keep the larvae inside their mouths almost constantly during their development to the free-swimming stage, with the exception that in the new species it is almost exclusively the female who performs this behavior.

创建者 Juan Miguel Artigas Azas

A new species of Thorichthys has been described in the journal Revista peruana de biología: 24(n. 1), pp. 3-10. The new species, endemic to the Coatzacoalcos river drainage in Mexico, has been known for many years as Cichlasoma (Thorichthys) "helleri" (Artigas Azas 1991, who first recognized the species as new), Thorichthys sp. 'Coatzacoalcos' (Stawikowski et al, 1998) and later as Thorichthys sp. ‘mixteco’ in several publications. This species is diagnosed by the authors from the rest of the Thorichthys species by a set of meristic characters (that actually don’t difference it from them) and by the presence of a “black blotch on the dorsal fin of the females between the sixth and seventh spine” (which actually T. helleri also has in some populations). The specific name chosen for the species, panchovillai, is to honor the Mexican revolution prominent figure José Doroteo Arango Arámbula (Pancho Villa). Why such a beautiful fish was named after a notorious murdered and thief that in a power struggle was partially responsible of the killing of 20% of Mexican population at the beginning of the 20th century, and never put a foot on the land of this beautiful species, is mysterious at least.

创建者 Juan Miguel Artigas Azas

A new species of Pseudocrenilabrus from the Congo River basin, probably endemic to Lake Mweru in the border between Zambia and the Congo Democratic Republic has been described by Cyprian Katongo, Ole Seehausen, Jos Snoeks in the magazine Zootaxa. The new species: Pseudocrenilabrus pyrrhocaudalis, whose specific name means “red tail” had been proposed by the senior author as a new potential species Pseudocrenilabrus sp. nov. ‘orange’ back in 2015. P. pyrrhocaudalis is diagnosed from the other Pseudocrenilabrus species on the basis of its color pattern and its sub-truncate caudal fin. It inhabits syntopically (at the same place) with P. philander. The common name Fire-tailed Pseudocrenilabrus is proposed for the species.
