Re: Trichomycterus species?

Many thanks, Jools! The specimens of Amiidae look strikingly similar. Though the color pattern is somewhat different - mine have longitudinal stripe and larger dorsal spots - but as you have mentioned this may be the individual or geographic variation of the same species. I have checked Castellanos-...

species of Trichomycterus?

Hi All, Just today I received 2 of these cats. I'd guess they are Trichomycterus but little is behind of this guess. Seller told me they are from Peru. My images are far from being good because I was not able to capture them showing full length (caudal fin is distorted because my jar has rounded cor...

Re: Species of Microglanis?

Many thanks, Eric! You truly did a job digging through uncertainties of Microglanis systematics. Answering to your question: yes, I bought both at the same time. That was back in 2015... Interestingly, all (about 7) specimens at the store were like the one I've pictured and only one that looked &quo...

Species of Microglanis?

Hi All, I have had two Microglanis specimens for several years. One looks similar to M. iheringi , but the second one (on image) has a bit different pattern of coloration. Though I am not sure how variable the pattern within the species is. I would appreciate any opinion on its identity. Thanks, DM

Re: unknown ?Heptapteridae?

Huge thanks Jools and Silurus!
Jools, you may use images for this species. They are not perfect but at least something. I think I did a better one for that blackish specimen (last in row). Will send.

unknown ?Heptapteridae?

Hi All,
I've just received these catfishes. They are very small: 23 mm and less. From Peru - no exact locality. I would appreciate any guesses on family, genus, species.
Thanks ahead,
DM
P.S. Pics are not great but that's all I was able to get so far.

Jools,
In Cetopsis candiru profile one of the thumbnail images is wrong (Pareiodon microps - the one you have removed).

Cetopsis candiru vs Pareiodon microps

Hi All, It looks like in Cat-eLog we have 2 images of Pareiodon microps (Trichomycteridae) that were identified and placed in Cetopsis candiru (Cetopsidae). Both images copyrighted by Chris Ralph. Please check me if I am correct. Attached are images of my P. microps and C. candiru . It happens I hav...

Re: unknown Heptapteridae?

Thanks to everybody for the input and suggestions! I like the idea of Silurus that it is Leptorhamdia . Moreover I would guess that it is Leptorhamdia marmorata . The size and distribution fit. Plus my fish looks identical to the image of L. marmorata in http://silurus.acnatsci.org/ACSI/field/Venezu...

unknown Heptapteridae?

Hi All, Just received this absolutely great fish. The guess is that it is a heptapterid cat. It was collected in Rio Ventuari and is about 4 inches long. I would appreciate if anyone can help to identify it at least to the genus level. Thanks ahead, DM P.S. Pictures are not the best and hopefully I ...

Re: help to id a non-catfish

Thanks for your replies! I have looked on the images of those Tetragonopterus species and they don't look like mine tetras. Color and eye size (?) are different. Originally I was thinking on some species of Moenkhausia but couldn't find a match. Now I am thinking that it might be a species of Astyan...

Species? Pimelodidae?

Hi all! Saw this fish for sale in online store. Looks interesting but have no clue on species (honestly is not sure on family either: Pimelodidae? or maybe Bagridae). Was wondering what it is and how big it'll get. I would appreciate any help of experts!!! Cheers, DM. https://i1.wp.com/exoticfishsho...
