Biogeography of the Mesoamerican Cichlidae (Teleostei: Heroini): colonization through the GAARlandia land bridge and early diversification
TLDR
A molecular phylogenetic and biogeographical analysis of the Mesoamerican cichlid fishes (Cichlidae: Cichlasomatinae: Heroini) reveals the spatial and temporal origins and diversification of the group.
Phylogeny of the Neotropical cichlid fish tribe Cichlasomatini (Teleostei: Cichlidae) based on morphological and molecular data, with the description of a new genus
TLDR
The results demonstrate that cichlasomatine cichlid diversity is divided into five principal lineages composed of eleven genera and three suprageneric clades, and that Aequidens probably represents a unique evolutionary lineage and would thus qualify for a separate generic status.
Character‐ and tree‐based delimitation of species in the ‘Cichlasoma’ facetum group (Teleostei, Cichlidae) with the description of a new genus
TLDR
Australoheros is morphologically characterized by the lowest values in meristic characters among heroines and by three apomorphic characters in coloration pattern, and evidence for its monophyly based on phylogenetic analyses of morphological and mtDNA characters is provided.
The Australoheros (Teleostei: Cichlidae) species of the Uruguay and Parana River drainages
TLDR
Four species groups are recognized based on phylogenetic hypotheses generated from morphological and cyt b characters; the forquilha group—A. for quilha, A. tembe, and Australoheros minuano sp.minuano; the scitulus group; and the facetus group.—A.
Two new species of Australoheros (Teleostei: Cichlidae), with notes on diversity of the genus and biogeography of the Río de la Plata basin
TLDR
Analysis of distribution patterns of Australoheros species in the Uruguay and Iguazu river drainages suggest that the described species diversity of the genus in the coastal drainages of SE Brazil is overestimated and that many described species are best undestood as representing cases of intraspecific variation.
