Nemadoras cristinae, new species of thorny catfish (Siluriformes: Doradidae) with redescriptions of its congeners

The sturdy, spatulate teeth in the upper and lower jaws of N. cristinae are evidently effective tools for raking caddisfly larvae from their attached substrates, as gut contents were dominated by cases and larval remnants of Nectopsyche (Leptoceridae).

Phylogenetic relationships of the South American Doradoidea (Ostariophysi: Siluriformes)

A phylogenetic analysis based on 311 morphological characters is presented for most species of the Doradidae, all genera of the Auchenipteridae, and representatives of 16 other catfish families. The

Checklist of the Fishes of Paraguay (CLOFPY)

A checklist of all freshwater fish species demonstrated to occur in Paraguay is presented with the aim of providing an updated list of all known fishes from Paraguay and to establish a baseline to

Taxonomic assessment of the Hard-Nosed Thornycats (Siluriformes: Doradidae: Trachydoras Eigenmann 1925) with description of Trachydoras gepharti, n. sp.

A sixth species is described here as Trachydoras gepharti and diagnosed by five characteristics unique among congeners, specialized for vacuuming chironomid larvae from sandy substrates in medium to large river channels.

An osteological description of the genus is provided, as well as redescriptions of S. calderonensis and S. heckelii, the most widespread species of Scorpiodoras, and a biogeographic discussion.

Ossancora, New Genus of Thorny Catfish (Teleostei: Siluriformes: Doradidae) with Description of One New Species

ABSTRACT. Ossancora, new genus, is diagnosed within Doradidae by having the unique combination of posterior coracoid process approximately as long as posterior cleithral process in adults, posterior

Morphology of the Gas Bladder in Thorny Catfishes (Siluriformes: Doradidae)

ABSTRACT. The gross morphology of the gas bladder is described, illustrated, compared and categorized among 86 of 88 nominal valid and six undescribed species representing all 31 genera of Doradidae

Merodoras nheco, new genus and species from Rio Paraguay basin, Brazil (Siluriformes, Doradidae), and nomination of the new subfamily Astrodoradinae

Merodoras nheco, new genus and species of Doradidae (Siluriformes) is described from Rio Paraguay basin, Brazil. The new genus belongs to the new subfamily Astrodoradinae, a monophyletic group

Phylogenetic relationships of thorny catfishes (Siluriformes: Doradidae) inferred from molecular and morphological data

Phylogenetic analysis of complete sequences of mitochondrial 12S and 16S rRNA genes and partial sequences of the nuclear elongation factor-1 alpha (EF1α) gene yields strong support for the monophyly of Doradidae and Astrodoradinae (as well as other relationships), but otherwise shows significant conflict with morphological results.
