A strong influence of river capture is infer in the accumulation of modern clade species-richness values, the formation of the modern basin-wide species assemblages, and the presence of many low-diversity, early-branching lineages restricted to the Atlantic Coastal Drainages.
Genetic structure and historical diversification of catfish Brachyplatystoma platynemum (Siluriformes: Pimelodidae) in the Amazon basin with implications for its conservation
The results show high levels of haplotype diversity and point to the occurrence of two structured populations of B. platynemum in the Amazon basin with high values for FST, as well as of differences in water chemistry in Madeira River.
Phylogenomic reappraisal of the Neotropical catfish family Loricariidae (Teleostei: Siluriformes) using ultraconserved elements.

New species of Parotocinclus (Siluriformes: Loricariidae) from coastal drainages of Rio de Janeiro, southeastern Brazil.
A new species of Parotocinclus is described from tributaries of rio São João, an Atlantic coastal river of Rio de Janeiro, southeastern Brazil. The new species is distinguished from its congeners by…

The geographical remoteness of the Paraná River basin, its recent history of marine incursion, and its continuing exclusion of many species that are widespread in other tropical South American rivers suggest that ecological opportunity played an important role in facilitating the observed accelerations in diversification.
Accelerated Diversification Explains the Exceptional Species Richness of Tropical Characoid Fishes.
Three species-rich and ecomorphologically diverse lineages that originated more than 60 Ma in the Paleocene experienced particularly notable bursts of Oligocene diversification and now account collectively for 68% of the approximately 2,150 species of Characoidei.
