DESCRIPTIVE ANATOMY OF EPIPLATYS SEXFASCIATUS (CYPRINODONTIFORMES: APLOCHEILIDAE) AND A PHYLOGENETIC ANALYSIS OF EPIPLATINA      (Aarn & Sheperd 2001)

ABSTRACT. - The external anatomy and osteology of Epiplatys sexfasciatus is described. The distribution of twelve characters of fin placement, the jaws, and hyobranchial apparatus, across ten species of Epiplatina, and an outgroup, is described. Four further characters defined the monotypic genera Aphyoplatys and Pseudepiplatys. Phylogenetic analysis using PAUP software was largely uninformative, while an UPGMA analysis proposed the hierarchy of relationships to be (Aphyoplatys, Pseudepiplatys), ((Callopanchina), ((Epiplatys sexfasciatus, E . singa, ((E. sangmelinensis, E. spilargyreius), (E. bifasciatus, E. dageti, E. fasciolatus, E. multifasciatus)))). The possible influence of paedomorphism on these analyses is discussed.
