Abstract: Surface and subterranean ichthyofauna in the Serra do Ramalho karst area, northeastern Brazil, with updated lists of Brazilian troglobitic and troglophilic fishes. Biota Neotrop., 8(4): http://www.biotaneotropica.org.br/v8n4/en/abstract?inventory+bn00 708042008Abstract: After an ichthyofaunistic survey in several epigean (surface) water bodies of the Serra do Ramalho, southern Bahia, conducted in May 2007, 44 species were recorded; in addition, three non-troglomorphic (normally eyed and pigmented) and two trog… Show more

“…Many cave fishes show spectacular adaptations to underground and aphotic environments, such as loss of pigmentation and reduced eyes, among other elements. Mattox et al (2008) lists 24 species of troglobitic fish (that is, without adaptations to the subterranean environment in relation to eyes and pigmentation) in Brazil, besides 13 species of troglophilic fish (that is, with adaptations evidently for subterranean life, and with populations established in the subterranean environment). the majority of these species are endemic to the caves in which they occur, and imbalance in one of them can mean the extinction of the respective ichthyofauna.…”

“…These species occur in different karst areas, situated in distinct phytogeographic domains (humid Atlantic forest, savannah-like Cerrado, semiarid Caatinga) and occupying different kinds of habitat (from open channel streams, including base-level streams and vadose tributaries, to the upper phreatic zone), and also in non-karst areas in the Amazon basin, without a taxonomic correlation. In addition, several putative troglophilic fishes (species able to establish self-sustained populations both in epigean and in subterranean habitats) have also been recorded in Brazilian caves (see Mattox et al, 2008).…”
