A new species of Australoheros (Teleostei: Perciformes: Cichlidae) from the río Iguazú basin, Argentina

  title={A new species of Australoheros (Teleostei: Perciformes: Cichlidae) from the r{\'i}o Iguaz{\'u} basin, Argentina},
  author={Jorge Rafael Casciotta and Adriana Edith Almir{\'o}n and Paseo del Bosque},
Australoheros kaaygua sp. n. is described from the rio Iguazu basin above Iguazu falls. Australoheros kaaygua sp. n. is distinguished from its congeners by the following combination of characters: 5-6 anal-fi n spines; 6-7 branched anal-fi n rays; caudal-peduncle length 8.9-11.8 % of SL; lips not thickened; lateral band formed by two series of scales, each of them with a dark spot in its centrum. Between both scales there is a narrow light area; dorsal, anal, caudal fi ns and opercle without…

Crenicichla yaha sp. n. (Perciformes: Labroidei: Cichlidae), a new species from the río Iguazú and arroyo Urugua-í basins, northeastern Argentina

– Crenicichla yaha sp. n. is described from the rio Iguazu and arroyo Urugua-i basins in Misiones Province, northeastern Argentina. Crenicichla yaha sp. n. can be differentiated from the remaining

Australoheros capixaba, a new species of Australoheros from south-eastern Brazil (Labroidei: Cichlidae: Cichlasomatinae)

According to RICAN & KULLANDER (2003, 2006), Australoheros is included in the tribe Heroini, subfamily Cichlasomatinae, closely related to the Mesoamerican and Antillean heroines.

Two new species of Australoheros (Teleostei: Cichlidae), with notes on diversity of the genus and biogeography of the Río de la Plata basin

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.

Australoheros sanguineus sp. n. - a new cichlid species from the rio Cubatão basin, southern Brazil (Cichlidae: Heroini)

A new species of Australoheros is herein described from the rio Cubatao basin, southern Brazil that differs from all its congeners mainly by the presence of a conspicuous rounded caudal-fin base.

Australoheros perdi, new species (Teleostei: Labroidei: Cichlidae) from the lacustrine region of the Doce River Valley, southeastern Brazil, with biological information

The available phylogenetic tree of the genusAustraloheros perdi does not include the species from southeastern Brazil, thus impeding any discussion of the phylogeny of these species.

A new species of the genus Australoheros from the rio Ribeira do Iguape basin, São Paulo, Brazil (Labroidei: Cichlidae: Cichlasomatinae)

Unpublished studies revealed several undescribed species of Australoheros occurring in rivers basins of eastern Brazil, including one new species, endemic to the rio Ribeira do Iguape basin, Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Evolutionary and biogeographical approach on Australoheros angiru (Cichlidae) from lagoons in a dividing plateau between the basins of the Iguassu River and the Uruguay River, Brazil

The basic and molecular cytogenetic data presented here contribute to the better understanding of chromosomal evolution of Cichlidae, act as interesting tools for taxonomy and phylogeny of the group, and help in understanding the dispersion of A. angiru between the two hydrographic basins.


The obtained results demonstrated that the species of Australoheros usually have a generalist and opportunist feeding habit, showing a preference for aquatic arthropods, and it was concluded that only Cladocera and Diptera Larvae can be considered similar items of the feeding habit.

Presence of Australoheros facetus (Teleostei: Cichlidae) in the southern Pampean area. Considerations about the ichthyofaunal settlement and distribution in the Southern boundary of the Brazilian Subregion.

The discovery of Australoheros facetus in two streams of the Atlantic coastal drainage in Southern Buenos Aires province extends the distribution range for this species some 200 km to the south.

Size related changes in sagitta otoliths of Australoheros facetus ( Pisces; Cichlidae ) from South America

The results of this analysis indicate that the sagitta of A. facetus acquires its definitive shape at 60 mm maturity, laboratory standard length (LS), which is near the lower limit of the size range achieved in laboratory conditions.



‘Cichlasoma’ scitulum: A New Species of Cichlid Fish from the Río de La Plata Region in Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay

‘Cichlasoma’ scitulum has the highest anal-fin spine counts of the three species and it is also characterized by having black-spotted dorsal, anal and caudal fins and flank and opercular scales.

Character‐ and tree‐based delimitation of species in the ‘Cichlasoma’ facetum group (Teleostei, Cichlidae) with the description of a new genus

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.
