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. Ricola genus novum is established for the species originally described by Regan (1904) as Loricaria (Loricaria) macrops. A lectotype for Ricola macrops is selected from the two syntypes, originating from Rio de la Plata in Argentina/Uruguay. Ricola macrops is compared with species of the genus…

Three new species of the armored catfish genus Loricaria (Siluriformes: Loricariidae) from river channels of the Amazon basin
TLDR
Three new species of Loricaria are described from large white- and black-water river channels of the Amazon basin of Brazil, the upper rio Negro drainage of southern Venezuela, and clear waters of the lower rio Tocantins, exhibiting varying degrees of reduction in eye size and pigmentation seen in other fishes inhabiting deep river channels in South America.
Systematics of Lamontichthys Miranda-Ribeiro (Siluriformes: Loricariidae), with the description of two new species
TLDR
The taxonomic revision of the genus Lamontichthys Miranda-Ribeiro, based on the examination of 164 specimens of different river drainages throughout the Amazon basin, revealed the presence of six species of which two are new, including L. parakana, new species, in the lower rio Tocantins basin.
Loricaria cuffyi (Siluriformes: Loricariidae), a new species of loricariin catfish from the Guiana Shield.
TLDR
The distribution of the new species adds to an interesting and well-documented biogeographical pattern exhibited by other Guiana Shield loricariids influenced by the proto-Berbice during the Cenozoic and recent configuration of drainages in the Guian Shield.
A New Species of Whiptail Catfish, Genus Loricaria (Siluriformes: Loricariidae), from the Rio Curuá (Xingu Basin), Brazil
TLDR
The larger specimen of L. birindellii exhibits male breeding characteristics known in other species of Loricaria, including expanded membranous portions of the lower lip, an increase in development of globular papillae on lip surfaces, rounded premaxillary- and dentary-tooth cusps, and slight thickening of the pectoral spine.
Dentectus barbarmatus, a new genus and species of mailed catfish from the Orinoco Basin of Venezuela (Pisces, Siluriformes, Loricariidae)
TLDR
A new genus and species of mailed catfish, Dentectus barbarmatus, is described from tributaries of the northern margin of the Orinoco River in Venezuela, assigned to the subtribe Planiloricariina.
Taxonomic Review of Rineloricaria (Loricariidae: Loricariinae) from the Laguna dos Patos Drainage, Southern Brazil, with the Descriptions of Two New Species and the Recognition of Two Species Groups
TLDR
The species in Rineloricaria are divided in two phenetic groups, based on general background color pattern, distribution of plates on abdomen, head and snout shape, shape of the naked area at tip of snout, number of lateral body series of plates, and presence of the dorsal-fin spinelet.
Nove espécies novas do gênero Rineloricaria (Siluriformes, Loricariidae) do rio Uruguai, do sul do Brasil
TLDR
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.
Biodiversity and ecology of the parasitic infracommunities of Loricaria prolixa (Siluriformes: Loricariidae) from the Tietê-Batalha Basin, SP, Brazil
TLDR
There was a significant positive correlation between the host standard length and the parasite abundance of D. spirophallus, Diplostomidae gen. sp.
