Abstract The present work is part of a process to create a Catalogue of the Freshwater Fishes of Colombia and consisted in the depuration and updating of the taxonomic and geographic components of the checklist of the freshwater fishes of Colombia. An exhaustive revision of the 1435 species recorded in 2008 was necessary to: 1. Add new species described since 2009 and species originally described from Colombia but inadvertently omitted in 2008; 2. Add new records of already described species; 3…

Fishes of the Cusiana River (Meta River basin, Colombia), with an identification key to its species
An updated checklist and identification key for fishes of the Cusiana River sub-basin is presented to facilitate comparisons with other sub- Basins of the Orinoquia, which are not categorized as areas of importance for conservation in Colombia.
Checklist of freshwater fishes from Loreto, Peru
This study presents an extensive review of published and unpublished occurrence records of fish species in the Loreto department. Located in the northeast of the country, Loreto is the most
Checklist of marine elasmobranchs of Colombia
A review and update to the shark and ray species recorded for the marine waters of Colombia was carried out. A total of 206 species had been recorded in the literature, of which 138 species (76
Contribution to a reference library of DNA barcodes for Colombian freshwater fishes
This dataset contributes to the knowledge on the DNA barcodes and occurrence records of 96 species of Freshwater fishes from Colombia and corresponds to an addition to BOLD public databases of 39 species.
Contribution to a reference library of DNA barcodes of Colombian freshwater fishes
A reference collection of DNA sequences of Colombian freshwater fishes deposited in the Ichthyology Collection of the University of Antioquia (CIUA), thus joining the multiple efforts that have been made in the country to contribute to the knowledge of genetic diversity in order to strengthen the inventories of biological collections and facilitate the solution of taxonomic issues in the future.
Expanding the knowledge of plankton diversity of tropical lakes from the Northeast Colombian Andes
Introduction: A large number of planktonic communities found in tropical lakes have not yet been recorded, limiting understanding of how these ecosystems function and of the role that organisms play
Ichthyofauna of piedmont and savannah environments in the Casanare River drainage, Orinoco Basin, Colombia
Currently, only 20 fish species have been recorded from the Casanare River, which is one of the main tributaries of the Meta River drainage. To characterize the fish assemblages of this river,
A database of freshwater fish species of the Amazon Basin
This database, including 2,406 validated freshwater native fish species, 232,936 georeferenced records, results from an extensive survey of species distribution including 590 different sources, represents a highly valuable source of information for further studies on freshwater fish biodiversity, biogeography and conservation.
Knowing biodiversity: Fishes from the Guareí River basin, a tributary of the Jurumirim reservoir, Paranapanema River, Brazil
Abstract: The Guareí River is a tributary of the Paranapanema River (Brazil), located in the upper portion of the Jurumirim Reservoir. Fish fauna studies in this watershed began in the 2000s, but
Revision of the South American catfish genus Hypophthalmus (Siluriformes, Pimelodidae) with descriptions of two new species from the Amazon and Orinoco Basins
Four of the six available species names are validated and two new species are described in the pimelodid genus Hypophthalmus, and newly discovered characters of the vertebral column, circumoral barbels, pelvic fins, and lateralis sensory canals provide strong support and diagnostics for species and species-groups.


Annotated checklist of the freshwater fishes of Suriname
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.
A New Species of Trinectes (Pleuronectiformes: Achiridae) from the Upper Río San Juan and Río Condoto, Colombia
Re-examination of these specimens and comparisons with all other described species of Trinectes support the conclusions of Hubbs and Bollinger that they are not Solea panamensis, now considered a junior subjective synonym of TrinECTes fonsecensis, and that they represent an undescribed species.
Conservation of freshwater biodiversity in key areas of the Colombian Amazon
Little has been done to identify key conservation areas in the Amazonian freshwater ecosystems of Colombia. This research constitutes the first attempt to systematically identify important

Three new species belonging to the same genus Hemibrycon are described from the Nare and Guatapé River drainages of the middle Magdalena River, Colombia, based on a series of 200 specimens using morphometric, meristic and osteological characters, as well as fish distribution and morphogeometric analytical methods.
A new species of the catfish genus Cordylancistrus (Siluriformes, Loricariidae) from the Magdalena River, Tolima, Colombia
The geographic distribution of the species suggest that Andean orogenesis played an important role in the diversification of the group.
