Is there a reason why this Rineloricaria is in the Cat-eLog as Hemiloricaria?

According to this, Hemiloricaria is a synonym of Rineloricaria.

Southerly range extension of Trichomycterus barbouri

Post by bekateen »

Y.P. CARDOSO & S. BOGAN. 2015. Ampliación de la distribución de Trichomycterus barbouri (Siluriformes, Trichomycteridae) para la Argentina. Rev. Mus. Argentino Cienc. Nat., n.s., 17(2): 147-151.ISSN 1514-5158 (print); ISSN 1853-0400 (on line)
Cardosa & Bogan wrote:ABSTRACT
Trichomycterus barbouri (Eigenmann, 1911) is a little-known species with a discontinuous distribution from the Beni River in Bolivia, in the Amazon River basin, to northwestern and central Argentina, in the Río de la Plata basin. Here, we describe new records of T. barbouri from three rivers of the chaco-pampean plain, two in the Santiago del Estero province and one in the Cuarto River basin in Córdoba province. These reports allow expanding the known area of distribution of the species, extending southwards the limit of the known distribution. Trichomycterus barbouri is the only species of the genus widely present in the chaco-pampean plain.

RESUMEN
Trichomycterus barbouri (Eigenmann, 1911) es una especie poco conocida que presenta una distribución discontinua desde el río Beni en Bolivia, cuenca del río Amazonas, hasta el noroeste y centro de la Argentina, en la cuenca del Río de la Plata. Se describen nuevos registros de T. barbouri en tres ríos de la llanura chacopampeana, dos en la provincia de Santiago del Estero y uno en el río Cuarto, en la provincia de Córdoba. Estos reportes permiten ampliar el área de distribución conocida para la especie, extendiendo más al sur su límite austral. Trichomycterus barbouri es la única especie del género que está ampliamente distribuida en la llanura chaco-pampeana.

Glanidium ribeiroi was described from the Iguazú River basin in Paraná State, Brazil. In Argentina, the species was reported for the Urugua-í stream and the Iguazú River basins in the Misiones province, and some tributaries of the middle Paraná River basin, such as Cuña Pirú in Misiones and the Salado River at Santa Fe province. After a critical review of all the Argentinian records of Glanidium ribeiroi we concluded that the specimens reported from Cuñá Pirú should be referred to Tatia neivai (Ihering, 1930) and the record of G. ribeiroi from Santa Fe province was based on a specimen that is here assigned to Microglanis carlae Vera Alcaraz, da Graça & Shibatta, 2008. In this way, the southernmost records for G. ribeiroi are to be excluded and the endemic nature of this species is confirmed for the Urugua-í and Iguazú basins.

New records for the Rio Pelotus

Post by bekateen »

Updates for The paper also found unidentified Trichomycterus and Imparfinis.

NOTE: This paper reports Rhamdia quelen as being found and native here. Although possibly introduced, it appears that the original distribution of R. quelen is much farther north of the Parana. Given this, and the facts that (a) I've read this genus is a mess and (b) there are two other Rhamdia species nearby, I've chosen to NOT add the Rio Pelotus as an occurrence for R. quelen.

ABSTRACT
The fish fauna of the Pelotas River, in the Upper Uruguay ecoregion of southern Brazil was inventoried. Samplings were performed quarterly between August 2013 and May 2014 at 14 sites in the Pelotas River and its tributaries, using gill nets of different mesh sizes, sein nets, cast nets and electrofishing. In total, 7,745 specimens were recorded, comprising 46 species, belonging to 13 families and five orders. Approximately 80% of the species belonged to the orders Characiformes and Siluriformes, as well as the families Characidae and Loricariidae, which included a greater number of species. Of the total species, 24% were endemic to the Upper Uruguay River, four were identified only at the genus level and none was considered non-native. Approximately, half of the 98 species previously recorded for the Upper Uruguay basin were also detected in this study. The tributaries of the Pelotas River exhibited different faunas with five exclusive species. Thirty species were present in both the tributaries and the main channel. In addition, higher species richness, as well as the presence of larger-sized species were observed in the main channel. Many of the species not restricted to the Upper Uruguay River have already been reported as part of the Taquari-Antas River fauna. However, the local biodiversity of this region is under several threats, such as land use and installation of small hydroelectric plants. These results highlight the importance of the conservation of plateau/upland rivers, especially in the Upper Uruguay ecoregion, which shows a peculiar fish fauna and endemism.

RESUMO
A fauna de peixes do rio Pelotas, bacia do Alto Uruguai foi inventariada. As amostragens foram realizadas trimestralmente entre agosto de 2013 e maio de 2014, em 14 pontos da bacia do rio Pelotas, utilizando-se redes de emalhar de diferentes tamanhos, redes de arrasto, tarrafas e pesca elétrica. No total, foram registrados 7.745 exemplares, compreendendo 46 espécies pertencentes a 13 famílias e cinco ordens. Aproximadamente 80% das espécies foram pertencentes as ordens Characiformes e Siluriformes, assim como as famílias Characidae e Loricariidae, que tiveram maior número de espécies. Do total de espécies amostradas, 24% são endêmicas do Alto rio Uruguai, quatro foram identificadas apenas em nível de gênero e nenhuma foi considerada não nativa. Aproximadamente metade das 98 espécies anteriormente registradas na bacia do Alto rio Uruguai foi registrada nesse estudo. Os tributários do rio Pelotas exibiram distinta fauna com cinco espécies exclusivas. Trinta espécies foram comuns aos afluentes e canal principal. Verificou-se maior riqueza, bem como a presença de espécies de maior porte no canal principal. Muitas das espécies não restritas ao alto rio Uruguai já foram relatadas como parte da fauna da bacia do rio Taquari-Antas. No entanto, a biodiversidade local da região de estudo está sob diversas ameaças, como o uso do solo e a instalação de pequenas centrais hidrelétricas. Esses resultados destacam a importância da preservação dos rios de planalto, especialmente na ecorregião do Alto rio Uruguai, que apresenta uma fauna de peixes peculiar e endemismos.

Hoplosternum littorale
The current paper had as objective to record the occurrence of H. littorale in the Salgado River basin, Juazeiro do Norte municipality, in the southern region of Ceara, based on the collection of 12 specimens, made with the use of appropriate tools with a thickness of 0.5 cm, the fishes were captured on the Caras River and the Sao Jose River, effluents of the Salgado River. With larger sizes and weights, the fishes collected in Sao Jose River seem to have adapted to the pollution, since the river receives sanitary sewage from the surrounding neighborhoods and in the dry season is its only source of water. The Caras River does not have sanitary sewage, but its banks have been deforested with several silted places. By demonstrating an ease of adjusting better to a polluted environment and with low oxygen content, the species characterizes an invasive profile.

ABSTRACT:

The ichthyofauna of the rio Purus has been little investigated, especially in its lower portion, characterized by diverse aquatic environments, especially in flooded areas. We inventoried the ichthyofauna of floodplain lakes with different management efforts in Reserva de Desenvolvimento Sustentável Piagaçu-Purus (RDS-PP), which represent important resource for commercial fishing in North region, in the first illustrated inventory of the fish fauna from lower rio Purus. We surveyed 20 lakes, classified as open access (eight lakes) and protected (12 lakes) during 2009 low water levels. A total of 2,299 individuals were collected, represented by seven orders, 25 families and 74 species. Characiformes was the most representative order in number of species and families, followed by Siluriformes, Cichliformes, Gymnotiformes, Clupeiformes, and Osteoglossiformes. Most abundant and frequent species were Pygocentrus nattereri, Triportheus angulatus, Serrasalmus sp. "2n=58", Pterygoplichthys gibbiceps, and Osteoglossum bicirrhosum. Protected lakes presented higher species richness compared to open access lakes. Similarly, protected lakes possessed 26 species occurring exclusively, with emphasis on Colossoma macropomum, an important species for fisheries due to its commercial importance. We added 44 new records of fish species for the lower rio Purus. Our results indicate the potential efficiency of zoning systems of open access and protected lakes established by local population and ruled by RDS-PP for fisheries management. Therefore, we strongly suggest its maintenance for conservation of ichthyofauna of floodplain lakes of lower rio Purus.

For some of the species listed below, I added Purus to the occurances table. For others, if they are already listed in the "Amazon" with a pin near Manaus, I left their occurence info unchanged. For a few, the identity listed seemed to move them to a radically different location; I wondered if the ID was incorrect, so I did not add the Purus to the occurence data for those species either.

Abstract
The Neotropical fish family Loricariidae is the most diverse family of catfishes (order Siluriformes) and the fifth largest fish family, with approximately 993 valid species. The species of the family are geographically distributed from Costa Rica in Central America to Argentina in South America and are grouped into 83 genera and the following six subfamilies: Hypoptopomatinae, Hypostominae, Loricariinae Delturinae, Lithogeninae and Rhinelepinae (Roberto et al., 2006, Birindelli et al., 2007, Corea et al., 2014, Eschmeyer & Fong, 2019).
