  author={Zuzana Musilov{\'a} and Ingo Schindler and Wolfgang Staeck},
The South American cichlid genus Andinoacara MUSILOVA, ŘICAN & NOVAK, 2009 belonging to the tribe Cichlasomatini is one of the genera which were recently described as the result of analyses of morphological and molecular data and ensuing nomenclatural revisions. This genus involves six species previously placed in the genus Aequidens EIGENMANN & BRAY, 1894, viz. Cichlosoma biseriatum REGAN, 1913, Acara coeruleopunctata KNER, 1863, Acara latifrons STEINDACHNER, 1878, Cychlasoma pulchrum GILL…

Phylogenetic position and re-description of the endangered cichlid Nannacara hoehnei, and description of a new genus from Brazilian Cerrado (Teleostei, Cichlidae, Cichlasomatini)

The restrict distribution area, and the widespread and accelerated destruction of natural habitat strongly indicate that Rondonacara hoehnei is critically endangered.

Molecular Phylogeny of Weakfish Species of the Stellifer Group (Sciaenidae, Perciformes) of the Western South Atlantic Based on Mitochondrial and Nuclear Data

The results indicate a close relationship between Bairdiella and Odontoscion, and also that the genus Stellifer is not monophyletic, but rather that it consists of two distinct lineages, one clade containing S. naso/S.


Assessment of quantitatively research work that employed molecular markers in studies on the Sciaenidae family showed that the number of publications increase during the last years even though few species have been studied, and phylogeny is still to be resolved.

Andinoacara blombergi, a new species from the río Esmeraldas basin in Ecuador and a review of A. rivulatus (Teleostei: Cichlidae)

Andinoacara blombergi, new species, is described from the rio Esmeraldas basin in northern Ecuador and distinguished from the most similar species, A. rivulatus, by 25 vs. 24 scal ...

Length-weight relationships of four freshwater fish species from the coastal drainage system in Peru

Length-Weight (LWR) relationships for Andinoacara stalsbergi, Trichomycterus punctulatus, Basilichthys archaeus and Poecilia reticulata are provided for the first time, contributing information towards the effort to conserve freshwater fishes.

The Experimental Heterochronies in a Green Terror Cichlid Andinoacara rivulatus (Teleostei: Cichlidae: Cichlasomatinae) Indicate a Role of Developmental Changes in the Cichlids Coloration Evolution

The revealed dependence of the cichlids pigment patterning on the thyroid axis activity offers the prospect for studying the role of the endocrine system in the evolution of bony fishes.



Phylogeny of the Neotropical cichlid fish tribe Cichlasomatini (Teleostei: Cichlidae) based on morphological and molecular data, with the description of a new genus

The results demonstrate that cichlasomatine cichlid diversity is divided into five principal lineages composed of eleven genera and three suprageneric clades, and that Aequidens probably represents a unique evolutionary lineage and would thus qualify for a separate generic status.

Karyotype and mitochondrial 16S gene characterizations in seven South American Cichlasomatini species (Perciformes, Cichlidae)

Both molecular and karyotypic data confirm that Cleithracara maronii belongs to a distinct clade, thus supporting its generic differentiation based on morphological characters and suggesting that Laetacara dorsigera is related to Bujurquina vittata and confirm their generic level of differentiation.

Development of coloration patterns in Neotropical cichlids (Perciformes: Cichlidae: Cichlasomatinae)

It can be concluded that kiwis present a biological rarity, with several features more characteristic of small mammals than birds, and are prone to parasites and diseases found in other avian species.

Mitochondrial DNA Phylogeny of the Family Cichlidae: Monophyly and Fast Molecular Evolution of the Neotropical Assemblage

The cichlid phylogeny suggests drift-vicariance events, consistent with the fragmentation of Gondwana, to explain current biogeographic distributions and relative rate tests suggest that Neotropical cICHlids have experienced accelerated rates of molecular evolution.

Phylogenetic Relationships of Extant Esocid Species (Teleostei: Salmoniformes) Based on Morphological and Molecular Characters

This study is the first study to integrate both morphological and molecular data into a phylogenetic analysis of Esox to provide a better understanding of esocid evolution and lay the foundation for the interpretation of fossil material assigned to E sox.

Jaws and teeth of american cichlids (Pisces: Labroidei)

The morphology of the upper, lower, and pharyngeal jaws is very similar among American cichlids; usually, several types exist on a single tooth plate, but the combination of tooth types differs among some genera.

Mitochondrial DNA Sequence Divergence and Phylogenetic Relationships among Eight Chromosome Races of the Sceloporus Grammicus Complex (Phrynosomatidae) in Central Mexico

A single most-parsimonious tree was selected from among these on the basis of a new character-weighting method that takes into account the observed frequencies of all 12 possible substitutions for protein genes.

Phylogenetic relationships within the genus Pimephales as inferred from ND4 and ND4L nucleotide sequences

Maximum parsimony yielded four trees, with the strict consensus providing no resolution of relationships among species, which implies independent evolution of morphological characters, possibly associated with convergent trophic specialization.
