Re: info-req on id


A. sp. Rio Preto do Candeias is a species that
belongs to the steindachneri-group found in the
Rio Preto do Candeias (just south of Porto Velho,
Brazil). A. sp. Erdfresser/Earth-eater/Lyretail
Purus/Rondonia is a species belonging to the
pertensis-group. It is the same species that is
erroneously listed as "A. pulchra" in Römer's
Atlas. It comes from the Rio Purus & across the
Amazon, in the Rio/Lago Manacapuru. A. sp.
Emerald/Alenquer is the same as A. cf. geisleri
(Smaragd/Emerald) collected around the city of
Alenquer, Brazil. A. sp. Rio Madiera isn't a name
that I'm familiar with. It could be any apisto
coming from the Rio Madeira. There is a form of A.
agassizii that it might be (A. cf. agassizii
Madeira), but it could be any of a number of
different species. "A. franki" is another
commercial name that I've never heard of either. I
don't like names like this because they make it
appear that the fish has a valid scientific name.
Right now there are over 300 apisto names that I
know about. If you can provide decent photos or
detailed descriptions of the last 2 named fish, I
might be able to ID them.
