Three new species of South American plated catfishes of the genus Corydoras Lacepede, 1803 are described and figured: Corydoras condiscipulus n. sp. from Fleuve Oyapock, border river between French Guiana and Brazil (= Rio Oiapoque), C. narcissus n. sp., and C. robustus n. sp., both from a tributary creek of the Rio Ipixuna, Rio Purus system, Est. Amazonas, Brazil. The occurrence of C. oiapoquensis Nijssen, 1972, C. amapaensis Nijssen, 1972, and C. condiscipulus in French Guiana and Brazil is… 
Review of the genus Corydoras from Peru and ecuador (Pisces, Siluriformes, Callichthyidae)
This paper contains records and descriptions of thirty species of the callichthyid catfish genus Corydoras Lacepede from Peru and Ecuador, and their morphometric and meristic characters are tabulated.
A New Species of Corydoradinae Catfish (Ostariophysi: Siluriformes: Callichthyidae) from Rio Solimões Basin, Brazil
Investigation about the position of the new Corydoras from the Rio Urucu basin in light of previous phylogenetic hypotheses concerning this subfamily indicates that the arc-striped coloration pattern was independently acquired.
Two new species of Corydoras Lacépède, 1803 (Siluriformes: Callichthyidae) from the rio Madeira basin, Brazil
Two new species of Corydoras are described from the rio Madeira basin, Brazil and can be distinguished from its congeners by presenting the following combination of features.
Revisionary study of the armored catfish Corydoras paleatus (Jenyns, 1842) (Siluriformes: Callichthyidae) over 180 years after its discovery by Darwin, with description of a new species
Corydoras paleatus can be distinguished from its congeners by presenting the following unique combination of features: perpendicularly directed serrations along entire posterior margin of the pectoral spine; three large black blotches along midline of flank; hyaline or black pectora fin; and transversal black bars on caudal-fin lobes.
Corydoras fulleri (Siluriformes: Callichthyidae), a new catfish species from the rio Madeira basin, Peru.
A new long-snouted Corydoras species is described from two tributaries of the río Manuripe and a tributary of the río Madre de Dios, rio Madeira basin, Peru. Corydoras fulleri can be distinguished
Checklist of catfishes, recent and fossil (Osteichthyes: Siluriformes), and catalogue of siluriform primary types
A checklist of Recent and fossil catfishes (Order Siluriformes) is presented, summarizing taxonomic literature published through 2005, and one new name is proposed herein: Clariallabes teugelsi, as a replacement for Clarias (Allabenchelys) dumerili longibarbis David & Poll, 1937.
Studies on parasites of ornamental fish from South America, with particular reference to their pathogenicity and potential for transfaunation
This study investigated the health of wild ornamental fish species prior to export and on their arrival at the importers in Brazil and South America and found that all major groups of parasites were generally found at low prevalence and intensity of infection.
Deconstructing an octogenarian misconception reveals the true Corydoras arcuatus Elwin 1938 (Siluriformes: Callichthyidae) and a new Corydoras species from the Amazon basin.
After 80 years of misidentifications, the analysis of the holotype of Corydoras arcuatus plus several non-type specimens attributed to this species allowed its recognition and also revealed a new
