Phylogeny and evolutionary radiation in seasonal rachovine killifishes: biogeographical

and taxonomical implications               (Costa 2014)

 

Vertebrate zoology 64 (2): 177–192 7 25.7.2014

 

 

Abstract A phylogenetic analysis combining available mitochondrial DNA sequences (total of 3,339 bp) and 161 morphological characters for 22 species of rachovine genera (Aphyolebias, Austrofundulus, Gnatholebias, Llanolebias, Micromoema, Moema, Neofundulus, Pterolebias, Rachovia, Renova, Terranatos, and Trigonectes), and 16 outgroups, supports monophyly of the group containing genera endemic to the Orinoco river basin and adjacent coastal drainages. Results of the present analysis are compared to previous studies. The tree topology indicates that the genera Moema and Rachovia as presently delimited are paraphyletic; consequently, Aphyolebias and Austrofundulus are respectively placed in the synonymy of Moema and Rachovia. This study also indicates that rachovines were in the past geographically restricted to the Amazonas-Paraguay area where diversification in niche exploitation was constrained by competition with sympatric members of older seasonal fish lineages. Rachovines later reached the Orinoco basin and adjacent coastal drainages by dispersal through the Paleo-Amazonas river basin, when major evolutionary radiation taken place.

Moema apurinan (Costa 2007

Moema apurinan sp. n. and Aphyolebias boticarioi sp. n. (Teleostei: Cyprinodontiformes: Rivulidae): two new annual killifishes from the Rio Purus basin, Brazilian Amazon

Abstract

Two new annual fishes are described from the upper Rio Purus drainage, Amazonian basin, northern Brazil. Moema apurinan, new species, is similar to M. staecki, these two species distinguished from other congeners in having contact organs on scales of the flank in males, an acuminate caudal fin, fewer pectoral-fin rays, fewer vertebrae, and a narrower rostral cartilage. Moema apurinan differs from M. staecki in having a longer pectoral fin and a wider basihyal. Moema apurinan is distinguished from all other congeners by possessing fewer caudal-fin rays. Aphyolebias boticarioi, new species, differs from all other congeners by having a deeper body. It is similar to A. rubrocaudatus, A. obliquus, A. claudiae and A. schleseri in having a ventral marginal black stripe on the caudal fin in males. Aphyolebias boticarioi differs from these species by a combination of features including number of anal-fin rays, pectoral-fin rays, vertebrae and gill-rakers, and color patterns.    

 

Moema beucheyi, Valdesalici, Nielsen & Pillet 2015

Moema beucheyi (Teleostei: Cyprinodontiformes: Rivulidae), a new annual killifish from the Río Madeira basin, Bolivian Amazon

Abstract

Moema beucheyi, new species, is described from a seasonal pool in the Río San Miguel drainage, Río Madeira basin, Bolivian Amazon. The new taxon is similar to M. heterostigma, M. ortagai/M. quiii, M. pepotei, and M. piriana in that males possess filamentous rays on the pectoral-fin tips, and to M. heterostigma and M. ortegai in exhibiting an orange color pattern on the body and fins. M. beucheyi differs from all known congeners by presence of distinctive orange lateral stripe outlined by a series of brown dots on the caudal fin, greenish-grey pigmentation on the ventral portion, and greater numbers of scales in the transverse and circumpeduncular series.
