Teleocichla wajapi, new species, is described from the rio Jari basin, northern Brazil. The new species differs from its congeners by possessing four anal-fin spines, 56-62 scales in El series, smaller orbital diameter (24.6-30.2% of head length) and barred or zigzag color pattern on flanks. New information on the morphology and distribution of T. centrarchus is provided based on recently collected material. 
Teleocichla preta, a new species of cichlid from the Rio Xingu Basin in Brazil (Teleostei: Cichlidae).
Teleocichla preta nov. sp. inhabits the rapids along the Rio Xingu and lower portion of the Rio Iriri. It is the largest species in the genus, reaching 121·3 mm standard length (LS ) while others doExpand

Multilocus phylogeny of Crenicichla (Teleostei: Cichlidae), with biogeography of the C. lacustris group: species flocks as a model for sympatric speciation in rivers.
First multilocus analysis of the largest Neotropical cichlid genus Crenicichla combining mitochondrial (cytb, ND2, 16S) and nuclear (S7 intron 1) genes and comprising 602 sequences of 169 specimensExpand
Phylogeny, taxonomy, and evolution of Neotropical cichlids (Teleostei: Cichlidae: Cichlinae)
The simultaneous analysis of 6309 characters for 90 terminals resulted in the first well‐supported and resolved generic‐level phylogeny for Neotropical cichlids, supporting a Gondwanan origin for Cichlidae. Expand
Phylogeny and Taxonomic Revision of the Endemic Malagasy Genus Ptychochromis (Teleostei: Cichlidae), with the Description of Five New Species and a Diagnosis for Katria, New Genus
The Malagasy cichlid genus Ptychochromis is revised and five new species are described, one of which is presumed to be extinct, as well as removing the sister taxon to PtyChochromoides katria and placing it in its own genus, Katria, which is described herein as new. Expand
Phylogeny and biogeography of cichlid fishes (Teleostei: Perciformes: Cichlidae)
Results indicate that Labroidei is not monophyletic, and that the sister group to Cichlidae may comprise a large and diverse assemblage of percomorph lineages. Expand
Total evidence: molecules, morphology, and the phylogenetics of cichlid fishes.
The authors' analyses confirm the placement of Malagasy/Indian cichlids as the most basal lineages, with a sister-group relationship to the monophyletic African and Neotropical clades, and total evidence suggests that the controversial African genus Heterochromis is at the base of the African radiation.

Multilocus phylogeny and rapid radiations in Neotropical cichlid fishes (Perciformes: Cichlidae: Cichlinae).
The largest molecular phylogeny of Neotropical cichlid fishes produced to date is reported, combining data from three mitochondrial and two nuclear markers for 57 named genera and 154 species from South and Central America. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of species of Crenicichla (Teleostei: Cichlidae) from southern South America based on the mitochondrial cytochrome b gene: Phylogenetic relationships of species of Crenicichla
The sequence variation within the C. missioneira group is remarkably minor despite considerable morphological differences, supporting the conclusion that it forms an endemic species flock in the Uruguay River basin. Expand
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. Expand
Morphology, molecules, and character congruence in the phylogeny of South American geophagine cichlids (Perciformes, Labroidei)
The hypothesis that morphological differentiation of geophagine lineages occurred rapidly as part of an adaptive radiation is supported and the subfamily is made the most diverse and ecologically versatile clade of cichlids outside the African great lakes. Expand
