Which Rineloricaria males get this hairy?

Post by bekateen »

Hi all,

Today I was reading a thesis:
  • Brito, Marcelo Fulgêncio Guedes de. (2007). Atividade reprodutiva dos peixes do rio Macaé (RJ) em função do gradiente longitudinal. i-x, 170 f.: il. Tese (Doutorado em Ecologia) – Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro, Instituto de Biologia, Programa de Pós Graduação em Ecologia.
In that thesis, I found these photos of a male Rineloricaria sp. brooding his eggs in a log crevice. I had no idea that males of some Rineloricaria spp. get so hairy, but obviously this does. Are there other species of Rineloricaria that get this hairy?

Thanks in advance,
Eric
