Abstract:Gymnotus is the most studied genus of the order Gymnotiformes, but the morphological similarities of the different species make it difficult to identify taxa reliably. The present study is a continuation of the ongoing research into the taxonomic diversity of the stocks of Gymnotus sold as live bait in the Pantanal, Brazil. These studies have been based on cytogenetic analyses, DNA barcoding, and the analysis of coloration patterns. The results of the cytogenetic analysis confirmed the presence of three distin… Show more
