Pimelodella in Colombia & redescription of Pimelodella serrata

Post by bekateen »

Cortés-Hernández, M.A., Méndez-López, A., & C. Donascimento. (2023). New records of Pimelodella (Siluriformes, Heptapteridae) from Colombia for the Amazon River basin, and redescription of P. serrata. Zootaxa, Published: 2023-05-19

We recorded Pimelodella bockmanni and P. serrata for the first time for Colombia, based on specimens collected in tributaries from the main channel of the Amazonas River, in the so-called Trapecio Amazónico, in the southernmost region of this country. We also present morphometric, meristic, and osteological data of the examined material, and provide a complementary morphological description of the poorly known P. serrata, a species known only from the Madeira River drainage in Bolivia and Brazil.
