  author={Isa{\"a}c J. H. Isbr{\"u}cker},
This publication presents a catalogue of the taxa of the neotropical family Loricariidae, the mailed catfishes, including about 600 described species and 70 genera. An attempt is made to assign each species to its proper genus and to arrange the genera into an approximate phylogenetic order. Numerous new combina tions have become necessary. A new tribe, consisting of two new subtribes, and three new genera are herein established. Notes on type-material, recorded in the literature subsequent to… 
The genera of the Neotropical armored catfish subfamily Loricariinae (Siluriformes: Loricariidae): a practical key and synopsis
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.
The mailed catfish genus Lasiancistrus Regan, 1904, from French Guiana and Surinam, with descriptions of two new species (Pisces, Siluriformes, Loricariidae)
Examination of recently collected material of the mailed catfish genus Lasiancistrus Regan, 1904, from French Guiana and Surinam revealed L. niger (Norman, 1926), and two new species: L. brevispinis
Three new species of Ancistrus Kner, 1854 (Siluriformes: Loricariidae) from the Rio Iguaçu basin, Paraná State, Brazil
Three new species of Ancistrus, family Loricariidae, were recently caught in the Rio Iguacu basin and they were attributed to three new species that are described herein.
Phylogenetic relationships of the species of Acestridium Haseman, 1911 (Siluriformes: Loricariidae)
A phylogeny of the species of the loricariid genus Acestridium and relevant outgroups is presented based on a parsimony analysis of 52 unweighted and unordered morphological characters, finding Acestidium to be sister to Niobichthys with this clade subsequently the sister-group to Oxyropsis + Hypoptopoma.
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.
A new species of Rineloricaria (Siluriformes: Loricariidae: Loricariinae) from rio Daraá, rio Negro basin, Amazon, Brazil
The new species is diagnosed by having seven branched pectoral-fin rays, finger-like papillae on the lower lip, a large multi-angular preanal plate, and at least four quadrangular plates of variable size surrounding the preAnal plate.
Redescription of Dekeyseria picta (Siluriformes; Loricariidae), a poorly known ancistrin from the Amazon and Orinoco Basins.
Examination of material deposited at Brazilian and Venezuelan collections, including the original type specimens of Ancistrus brachyurus and A. pictus, plus samples recently collected in the Rio Negro, Amazonas, Brazil, allowed re-evaluation of the taxonomic status of D. picta and provides additional information on its distribution, habitats and reproductive strategies.
Sturisoma kneri, New Species, a Name for an Old Yet Poorly-Known Catfish (Siluriformes: Loricariidae)
Sturisoma kneri is described as a new taxon and diagnosed based on interorbital width, osteological features of the roof of the skull, and number of plates in the midventral plate series.
Redescription of Ancistrus greeni (Siluriformes: Loricariidae), and description of a new species from the río Madre de Dios basin, Peru
The redescription of A. greeni is provided, and its recognition along with the discovery of this new species increases to five the officially number of Ancistrus species from the río Madre de Dios basin.
A new species of the catfish genus Cordylancistrus ( Siluriformes , Loricariidae ) from the Sierra Nevada
The occurrence of one species of Cordylancistrus in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta could have interesting biogeographic implications for hypotheses related to the geological history of northwestern corner of South America or to the dispersal or vicariance models used to explain biogeographical patterns of related species in Colombia.
