The genera of the Neotropical armored catfish subfamily Loricariinae (Siluriformes: Loricariidae): a practical key and synopsis
TLDR
The subfamily Loricariinae belongs to the Neotropical mailed catfish family LoricARIidae and is recognized by their long and flattened caudal peduncle and absence of an adipose fin.
Molecular phylogeny of the highly diversified catfish subfamily Loricariinae (Siluriformes, Loricariidae) reveals incongruences with morphological classification.
TLDR
A molecular phylogeny of this group, including 350 representatives, is presented, based on the analysis of mitochondrial and nuclear genes, and indicates that Loricariinae are distributed into two sister tribes: Harttiini and LoricARIini.
Diversity of the Ancistrini (Siluriformes: Loricariidae) from the Guianas: the Panaque group, a molecular appraisal with descriptions of new species
TLDR
A dual approach using a nuclear marker as complementary identifier was applied to a group of closely related armoured catfishes constituting the Panaque group within the Guianas, and four new species were highlighted.
Molecular evidence for the paraphyly of Pseudancistrus sensu lato (Siluriformes, Loricariidae), with revalidation of several genera
TLDR
Afin d'evaluer la pertinence de tels regroupements, et en particulier les hypotheses morphologiques proposees par Armbruster (2004a, 2008), nous avons reconstruit une phylogenie utilisant des donnees mitochondriales et nucleaires and incluant un echantillon de 13 especes actuellement placees dans Pseudancistrus sensu lato.
Updated checklist of the freshwater and estuarine fishes of French Guiana
The fish fauna of French Guiana is among the best known of South America. Various fieldwork campaigns have been conducted since the publication of the "Atlas des poissons d'eau douce" de Guyane,
Annotated checklist of the freshwater fishes of Suriname
TLDR
In terms of species per square kilometer, the presently documented richness of the Surinamese freshwater fish fauna is comparable to, or even greater than, the richness of fish faunas of several other tropical South American countries.
Multilocus molecular phylogeny of the ornamental wood-eating catfishes (Siluriformes, Loricariidae, Panaqolus and Panaque) reveals undescribed diversity and parapatric clades.
TLDR
The finding that perhaps half of the species-level diversity in the widespread genus Panaqolus remains undescribed illustrates the extent to which total taxonomic diversity of small and philopatric, yet apparently widely distributed, Amazonian fishes may remain underestimated.
Identity of Hypostomus plecostomus (Linnaeus, 1758), with an overview of Hypostomus species from the Guianas (Teleostei: Siluriformes: Loricariidae)
TLDR
Notre analyse du materiel d'Hypostomus des bassins de l'Oyapock a l'Essequibo a revele 15 especes potentiellement valides et de nouvelles synonymies sont proposees chez H. plecostomus et H. gymnorhynchus, et "Boeseman".
