  author={Isa{\"a}c J. H. Isbr{\"u}cker and H. M. C. Nijssen},
Three new species belonging to two different genera of South American mailed catfishes of the subfamily Loricariinae are described and figured. A discussion of and comparative notes on related species are added. Rineloricaria formosa n. sp. is described from the Rio Inirida/Rio Orinoco drainage in Colombia, from the Rio Atabapo (Rio Orinoco drainage) in Venezuela, and from the Rio Tiquie and Rio Uaupes (Rio Amazonas drainage) in Brazil. It is compared with Rineloricaria morrowi Fowler, 1940…

Three New Species of the Loricariid Catfish Genus Loricariichthys (Teleostei: Siluriformes) from Southern South America
The monophyly of the genus Loricariichthys is discussed and it is provisionally diagnosed by having the third infrapharyngobranchial with a triangular lateral flange and the lower lip of immature males and females formed by two thick, cushionlike structures.
Nove espécies novas do gênero Rineloricaria (Siluriformes, Loricariidae) do rio Uruguai, do sul do Brasil
Nine new species of Rineloricaria are described from upper and middle rio Uruguay basin in states of Rio Grande do Sul and Santa Catarina, Brazil, mainly by abdominal plates arrangement, color pattern, extension of the anterior snout naked area, and fins length.
Rineloricaria osvaldoi (Siluriformes: Loricariidae): a new species of armored catfish from rio Vermelho, Araguaia basin, Brazil
A new species of Rineloricaria Bleeker from the rio Vermelho, Araguaia basin, Goias, Brazil is described, which increases the scenery of diversity of Loricariinae within this drainage basin.
Taxonomic revision of the Rineloricaria species (Siluriformes: Loricariidae) from the Paraguay River basin
The species and geographic distributional patterns of the genus Rineloricaria from the Paraguay River basin were revised, and Loricaria hoehnei is proposed as a new junior synonym of R. lanceolata.
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.
Abundância relativa e distribuição de Loricariichthys spixii (Steindachner) (Siluriformes, Loricariidae) no reservatório de Lajes, Estado do Rio de Janeiro, Brasil
The armored catfish L. spixii could be attributed to availability of muddy and sandy substrate associated with its k-strategy by carrying eggs, which could allow this species faces the environmental changes of the reservoir, mainly the variations in level of water, by hydroelectric power demand.
Type Catalogue of the Ichthyological Collection of the Zoologische Staatssammlung München. Part II: Fish types inventoried after 25 April 1944
Part I of the ichthyological type catalogue of the ZSM (Neumann 2006) reviewed the historic “Old Collection”, of which types were apparently lost in the Second World War. Part II refers to type
Checklist of the freshwater fishes of Colombia: a Darwin Core alternative to the updating problem
Updating the current checklist is a fundamental requirement to ensure its incorporation in the decision-making process with regard to the conservation of Colombian aquatic species and ecosystems, which are facing transformation processes as a result of activities such as mining, construction of hydroelectric plants, expansion of the agricultural frontier and subsequent deforestation.
Variation in energy density of Loricariichthys platymetopon (Siluriformes: Loricariidae) in the upper Paraná River basin
The variation in muscle energy density in relation to body size, sex, gonadal development stages, sampling site and habitat type (lotic, semi-lotic and lotic) is found to be moderate.
Metamorphic growth‐gradient changes in South American loricariid catfishes Loricariichthys maculatus and Pseudohemiodon laticeps
Growth allometries in relation to interspecific morphometric differences were studied in two species of loricariid catfishes that can be completely discriminated in the smallest larvae examined, suggesting that metamorphosis serves to “release”; adult growth patterns from phylogenetic constraints on growth.


Two new species and a new genus of Neotropical mailed catfishes of the subfamily Loricariinae Swainson, 1838 (Pisces, Siluriformes, Loricariidae)
A new monotypic genus and two new species of South American mailed catfishes of the subfamily Loricariinae are described and figured. A discussion of and comparative notes on related taxa are added.
A redescription of the South American Catfish Loricariichthys maculatus (Bloch, 1794), with designation of the lectotype and restriction of its type locality (Pisces, Siluriformes, Loricariidae)
The type species of the genus Loricariichthys Bleeker, 1862, Loricariichthys maculatus (Bloch, 1794), is redescribed from two syntypes, one of which is designated the lectotype. The same specimen is
A short review of the Surinam Loricariinae; with additional information on Surinam Harttiinae, including the description of a new species (Loricariidae, Siluriformes)
The loricariid armoured catfishes of Surinam are badly in need of a different approach, with special consideration of the comparative anatomy and osteology of the various species and higher units.
