Abstract On the basis of fish collections made between 1991 and 2014, four species of the seasonal killifish genus Neofundulus are reported to occur in the Brazilian Pantanal, Paraguay river basin: N. parvipinnis, endemic to the Cuiabá and São Lourenço river drainages, in the northern portion of the Pantanal;

N. rubrofasciatus, new species, from the Miranda river drainage, N. aureomaculatus, new species, from the Aquidauana river drainage, both in the south-eastern portion of the Pantanal; and N. paraguayensis, occurring in the Paraguay and Nabileque river floodplains, in the southern part of the Pantanal. The new species are diagnosed by unique colour patterns, and a combination of morphological characters states indicating that they are more closely related to N. parvipinnis and N. splendidus than to N. paraguayensis.

Abstract

Neofundulus splendidus n. sp. is described from Bolivia, departamento de Santa Cruz, río San Miguel, upper Mamoré basin. Neofundulus splendidus n. sp. is distinguished from the remaining Neofundulus species by a combination of characters: Large black spot at humeral region with diameter of approximately 1.5-2.0 of pupil in males and females (vs. black spot in humeral region, when present, small- half of pupil), 40-41 scales in longitudinal series (vs. 35-38 in remaining congeners).This is the first record for the genus Neofundulus in río Mamoré basin.

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.
