New Philippine record of south american sailfin catfishes (Pisces: Loricariidae)
Examination revealed that specimens of janitor fish, previously reported as Hypostomus plecostomus, actually belong to the genus Pterygoplichthys, family Loricariidae. Expand
Diversity and chromosomal evolution in the genus Ancistrus Kner, 1854 (Loricariidae: Ancistrini) from three hydrographic basins of Mato Grosso State, Brazil
Data corroborate the hypotheses of reduction of diploid number in species with derived features such as presence of sex chromosomes and polymorphisms, besides allowing inferences about the evolutionary mechanisms and the ancestor karyotype that favored the diversification of this important genus in the tribe Ancistrini.

Relationships of Lithogenes villosus Eigenmann, 1909 (Siluriformes, Loricariidae): Evidence from High-Resolution Computed Microtomography
Parsimony analysis of 41 characters obtained from the CT reconstructions, gross examination of external features, and previously published characters surveyed among loricarioid and outgroup catfishes indicated that Lithogenes shares a rich suite of derived characters with loricariids, most notably the presence of a mesethmoid condyle, posterior placement of the nasal capsule, closed pterotic aperture, lateral ethmoid lamina, and metapterygoid contacting the lateral ethMoid.

Hypancistrus inspector: A New Species of Suckermouth Armored Catfish (Loricariidae: Ancistrinae)
H. inspector were found to have many seeds in the intestine suggesting that the species is at least partially granivorous, and Hypancistrus is diagnosed based on the unique presence of a sharply angled adductor palatini crest. Expand
A new species of the Neotropical loricariid of Hypostomus cochliodon group (Hypostominae) from the lower Rio Tapajós basin, Brazilian Amazon.
The new species can be distinguished from all its congeners, except from the Hypostomus cochliodon group, by having 6-8 spoon-shaped teeth, dentaries angled at less than 80° and by the absence of a notch between hyomandibular and the metapterygoid. Expand
Pterygoplichthys pardalis (Castelnau, 1855), an introduced species in the Cauca River Basin, Colombia.
We report Pterygoplichthys pardalis introduction - a freshwater fish species from the Amazon river basin - in the Cauca river basin and in Salvajina and Calima dams, Colombia. Scope: We registeredExpand
Description of a new catfish genus (Siluriformes, Loricariidae) from the Tocantins River basin in central Brazil, with comments on the historical zoogeography of the new taxon
The phylogenetic results indicate that the new genus and species from the Tocantins River basin is a sister taxon of all the other members of the Neoplecostominae, originating during the Eocene at 47.5 Mya (32.7–64. 5 Mya 95% HPD). Expand
Description of Loraxichthys lexa, new genus and species (Siluriformes: Loricariidae) from the Río Huallaga Basin, central Peru, with notes on the morphology of the enigmatic Lipopterichthys carrioni Norman, 1935.
A new genus and species of armored catfish, Loraxichthys lexa, collected in 1955 by the Catherwood Foundation Peruvian-Amazon Expedition from the vicinity of Tingo María, Huánuco, is describedExpand
Evolutionary and biogeographic history of the subfamily Neoplecostominae (Siluriformes: Loricariidae)
It is hypothesize that headwater capture events and marine regressions have shaped the patterns of distribution within the subfamily Neoplecostominae throughout the distinct basins of southeast Brazil. Expand
Amazon Sailfin Catfish Pterygoplichthys Pardalis (Castellnnau, 1855) (Loricariidae, Siluriformes), a New Fish Species Recorded in the Serbian Section of the Danube River
Amazon sailfin catfish Pterygoplichthys pardalis is a new non-indigenous fish species recorded in the Serbian section of the Danube River, being reported for the first time in inland waters of Europe, as well. Expand
