Characidium heirmostigmata, a new characidiin fish (Characiformes: Crenuchidae) from the upper rio Paraná basin, Brazil

Abstract: Characidium heirmostigmata new species is described from the rio Ivaí drainage, upper rio Paraná basin, Paraná State, Brazil. The new species is diagnosed among its congeners by the possession of eight to 11 incomplete oblique dark bars on the body sides, extending upwards and downwards from the lateral line, independently of the eight or nine dorsal transverse bars usually present in species of Characidium. The new species is similar to Characidium serrano from the upper rio Uruguay basin, but differs by meri… Show more

“…The origin of each species was determined according to by Langeani et al (2007), in which autochthonous species are native to the upper Paraná River basin, the allochthonous species were introduced from other basins belonging to the Neotropical region and the exotic were introduced from other continents. The origin of each species were obtained from Reis et al (2003), Langeani et al (2007), Graça & Pavanelli (2008), Roxo et al (2014), Tencatt et al (2014), Zawadzki et al (2016) and personal communications from Cláudio H. Zawadzki (UEM); other species were considered endemic by means of analysis and comparison of data obtained with comparative material from adjacent basins.…”

“…Para estes autores, estas características permitem a exploração de pequenos espaços entre as rochas, sendo caracterizados como bagres especuladores de substratos que se alimentam basicamente de larvas aquáticas de insetos, e classificados como nectobentônicos Da mesma forma, Characidium aff. zebra Eigenmann, 1909 está dentro de um gênero rico, com cerca de 50 espécies que não ultrapassam 100 mm de comprimento padrão e ocorre em bacias hidrográficas Neotropicais (Graça & Pavanelli 2008). Segundo Aranha et al (2000) e Casatti & Castro (2006), o corpo fusiforme e as nadadeiras peitorais e pélvicas alargadas, expandidas e localizadas na posição ventral, permitem a estas espécies manterem-se firmemente aderidas ao substrato, resistindo ao fluxo da corrente, caracterizandoas, também, como nectobentônicas.…”
