The Heptapteridae family is endemic to the Neotropics and is one of the most representative members of the Siluriformes order in small bodies of water. Due the lack of data for clearly distinguishing their species, only recently was elevated from condition of subfamily to family. However, many doubts about certain species remain yet. There are a relatively large number of cytogenetics studies about heptapterids that permits comparative analyses focused in the karyotype evolution of the group… CONTINUE READING
