Description of current work: I primarily work on the morphological systematics of the Loricariidae, and I concentrate on a new subfamily (currently being described and revised with Roberto Reis and Edson Pereira) and the Hypostominae (which now includes the former Ancistrinae). Current revisions nearing completion include Lasiancistrus, Peckoltia, Hemiancistrus and related genera. I am also working on the molecular phylogenetics of the Hemiancistrus annectens group and am revising this group (with Justin Evans) and moelcular phylogeny of loricariids (with Michael Hardman). Fieldwork for all fishes has recently been completed in Guyana and Venezuela. Specimens are largely held at Auburn University’s fish collection.. I am also a Co-PI on the NSF-funded All Catfish Species Inventory that seeks to describe all species of catfishes and that provides funding for researchers the world over to complete this task. Please visit the ACSI website at: http://clade.acnatsci.org/allcatfish/. In non-catfishes, I am elevating the Atherinopsid Labisesthes vanhyningi (with David Werneke) and describing the southern population of the cyprinid Notropis buccatus (with Paul Pera) as a new species.

Description of current work: Taxonomists in my country have been chased until extintion. I was working in the ichtyology group of the Institut for Sea Sciencies (CSIC) in Barcelona until the premature death of the leader. Consequently no more chances were available to continue and now the remains of the group at that institute are unrelevant. Although my main field of interest has always been the Condrichthyan fishes and have been pupil of Dr. Matthias Stehmann since 1980, I found the chance to work on Triglid fishes (including Peristedidade) for my doctorate. I have woked in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, Mediterranean sea and described several triglid species mainly from the Indo-Pacific area, revising also almost all species of the world of this large group. However, I am interested in any group of fishes. At the present moment I am in charge of the biology and medicine area of the Interministerial Council for Research and Technological Innovation of the Catalan Government. My objective is to work in ichthyological research and I am trying to find some institution or research group where to move or, alternatively, obtain the minimum resources needed to work on this field at home.

Description of current work: The focus of my research efforts and interests are in chondrichthyan (sharks, rays, chimaeras) biology, ecology, fisheries, and systematics. I am especially interested in the community ecology, ecomorphology, and habitat utilization by chondrichthyans within various ecosystems. To this end I have several broad-based projects ongoing in the Bering Sea, eastern North Pacific, and southern Africa. Most of these North American projects are being conducted in collaboration with several National Marine Fisheries Service Labs including the Alaska Fisheries Science Center, Seattle, WA, Northwest Fisheries, Newport, OR, and the Southwest Fisheries Lab, Santa Cruz, CA and in southern Africa I am collaborating with colleagues on several projects stemming from my earlier research on the chondrichthyan fauna of this region.

Description of current work: Not yet updated since last Newsletter. (1) We continue to enter data in the Catalog of Fishes database. Currently we are going through the 2003 "Check List of Freshwater Fishes of South and Central America" species-by-species. This large, important work has established or changed the status (valid, synonym) of hundreds of species. A new internet version probably will be posted in December 2003. (2) The "Annotated Checklist" project was continued, and the first CD was completed and all articles in it are online at www.calacademy.org/research/ ichthyology/annotated, with 2 more expected late in 2003/early 2004 (see Announcement section). A new 6 month grant was received to prepare a "draft list of available names in Ichthyology". Initially this list will include available names, unavailable names, and incertae sedis names, and it will be output from the Catalog of Fishes database. This is to take advantage of Article 79 in the 1999 Code, but the process is lengthy, and it involves consensus on the part of ichthyologists. Our first task is to post the list and let people examine it and question anything in it. We believe we can purge from Ichthyology thousands of unavailable generic and specific names that have no information content (and are clutter for all intents and purposes, including nomina nuda, names mentioned in passing, etc.). Additional programming will take place in December, and the list posted by mid-2004. We will see what responses we receive. We anticipate corrections and comments (some critical). Then the list would go to a group of societies or one society, and a proposal made to the International Commission. For available names, this list would fix the names (spellings), authorship, date, bibliographic reference, and types for species. Once approved, any newly found old names or earlier references, etc., are rejected. How typos and small errors are to be corrected subsequently is not addressed in Art. 79. Of all large disciplines, we probably are the closest to being able to prepare such a list. See Article 79 for more details. It is worth a try, but it will take more research in old literature and consensus building on such subjects as how to spell certain author names. (3) The Academy in Golden Gate Park closes at the end of 2003, and nearly all of the buildings will be demolished. The move to a large building on Howard Street in downtown San Francisco will begin in early 2004 for a period of about 4 years. We will be somewhat crowded, but all specimens will be available. Please see the announcement of the move in the Announcement section. We are preparing for the move at this time. (4) I plan to concentrate on the database project, and hope to find additional funding for more Annotated Checklists, but even without funding or until we find more funding, I anticipate I can work with authors on a few families at a time

Description of current work: I am involved in an EC sponsored project, ECOCARP, and now working mainly with (1) systematics of the Chinese cyprinid fishes Zacoo, Saurogobio, and Hemibarbus (Cyprinidae); (2) ichthyofauna of Hunan Province; and (3) freshwater fishes of Guangxi Province. This year I did two collecting trips in China, one in Guangxi Province, one in Beijing area. The first trip lasted for about four weeks and was interrupted due to the outbreak of the SARS. The second trip ran only for a week or so, and the collection was small both in terms of species number and specimen amount. Works on the Burmese cyprinids continued. A manuscript on Burmese Garra (c/w Sven Kullander) is soon completed. Besides all the above mentioned, my long term project is a phylogenetic analysis on all danionin or rasborine species

Description of current work: Completing gadiform chapters for the FAO Eastern Central Atlantic guide, following successful and well-run workshop for the guide in the Canaries in July. Morids proving particularly challenging, and assistance from Eric Anderson solicited. Finalizing contribution to Clive Roberts's New Zealand Fish Guide with Peter McMillan. Describing two new Coleorinchus with McMillan from specimens taken during 2003 NORFANZ cruise to seamounts north of NZ. Describing two new Coelorinchus from Seychelles and Mascarene Ridge in western Indian Ocean with Daniel Golani, Avi Baranes, and Menachem Goren. Reporting new Hawaiian (and northern hemisphere) record of a common Australia/New Zealand grenadier. Writing (with McMillan) grenadier chapter for Martin Gomon et al.'s revised edition of "Fishes of Australia's South Coast." Proding Frank Pezold (sr author) to complete our MS on Sycidium spp. from Sao Tome et Principe. I can happily report that our move out of the old Academy facilities in Golden Gate Park and into the new, temporary building in the South of Market area of downtown San Francisco was completed by early September 2004. A prodiguous effort was made by staff and movers to successfully effect this transfer of more than 2M specimens and all associated staff, materials, and equipment. The move was especially stressful because our move date was moved back three times until ichthyology was essentially the last collection to move and the 6-wk period faced a hard, drop-dead ending date. We are now relatively comfortably, but tightly, enscounced in our new quarters and all collections are accessible, although getting to some of our large specimens that were formerly in vats is difficult, as they were moved into 55-gal drums. Bill Eschmeyer's presence, after his move to Tennessee, will be sorely missed. We hope to hire a postdoc to study Chinese freshwater fishes by mid-2005. This 1.5-to-2.0-year position will be NSF funded and will require collaboration with Chinese ichthyologists and several expeditions to Yunnan, China. The hiree must have Ph.D. in hand before the start date. A detailed description of the position will be available soon in an announcement for the position. Inquiries and recommendations of potential candidates are welcome. Anticipate making cruise off Namibia and Angola on board "Dr. Fridtjof Nansen" in Feb-Mar 2005. Also hope to make the 7th IPFC in Taiwan in May.

Description of current work: Work continues on descriptions of temperate Australian fish larvae. Two papers [Labridae, Aploactinidae] are published, and future descriptions [including Aulopidae, Cepolidae, Percichthyidae, Sillaginidae] will appear on the AMS website (http://amonline.net.au/larval_fishes)in the format of Neira et al (1998) Larvae of Temperate Australian Fishes. Also on line is a web-based summary of the available descriptions of early-life history stages of the fishes of New South Wales. This work is in collaboration with A Hay, A Miskiewicz, and/or T Trnski. A slightly updated, soft cover version of Leis & Carson-Ewart (2000) Larvae of Indo-Pacific Coastal Fishes appeared 2004 (see my online publication list:http://www.amonline.net.au/fishes/about/research/leis2.htm). The main research emphasis in the next few years will be on the ontogeny of behaviour and sensory abilities in marine fish larvae. This in collaboration with D Clark, D Higgs, K Poling, K Wright and others. The long-delayed paper on larval development in the lutjanid subfamily Lutjaninae is further delayed. Field work is planned at in Taiwan in May 2005 along with the Indo-Pacific Fish Congfernence. Check out our website at www.amonline.net.au/fish

Description of current work: My major research interest concerns the early history of actinopterygians, including their phylogenetic relationships and macroevolutionary patterns and processes. My current research program is focused on the revision of the family Semionotidae, with special emphasis on the European forms (the first taxa described within this group). Other projects involve the chondrosteans and teleosts of the continental Late Jurassic of Patagonia, the semionotiforms of the Tlay�a Quarry in Mexico, the Triassic actinopterygians of Argentina, and the Early Triassic actinopterygians of Southern China.

Description of current work: I am currently working on integrating molecular and morphological evidence to reconstruct the phylogeny of Neotropical cichlids. I am using the phylogenetic reconstruction of South American Geophagine cichlids to study the timing of their diversification and the evolution of ecological traits suchs life history and ecomorphology of feeding and habitat use. I am simultaneously working in improving our taxonomic understanding of geophagine cichlids and clarifying their higher-level classification. Taxonomic work in other groups, such as Acestrorhynchidae, interests me to a great degree.

Description of current work: My research centers around understanding the development and evolution of the actinopterygian skeleton from both morphological and molecular perspectives. Ongoing morphological work in my lab includes (1) the developmental morphology of the axial skeleton of the zebrafish, Danio rerio using histology and whole-mount methods, (2) actinopterygian pectoral fin development and evolution, and (3) evolution of axial skeleton ?modules? in fishes. The molecularly focused project in my lab involves determining the evolution of the molecular developmental genetics underlying fish median fins: we are testing the hypothesis that the developmental genetic pathways underlying the formation of joints in tetrapods evolved from segmentation mechanisms in fishes. The expression of gdf5, chordin, noggin, shh, sox9, bmps and wnts are being examined in conjunction with functional studies. Deep Fin will facilitate the collaboration among researchers interested in the connection between morphology and genetics.

Description of current work: Continue to work primarily with galaxiids across southern cool temperate; new taxa continue to turn up; collected for several weeks in Southern Africa with colleagues and there are at least 2-3 undescribed species. Continue to explore galaxiid relationships and biogeography. Also some interesting fossils turning up, including what seems like a perciform (from 1 1/2 scales from Miocene) not hitherto known in NZ freshwaters; continue interest in diadromy, globally, both for its own sake, and also as a key element in the biogeography of some groups (yes: dispersal lives!)

I am investigating whether or not the specimens of Channa argus recently caught in the Potomac River system are from the same population as those caught in Crofton, MD.in 2002 and if there is evidence that they are breeding in the Potomac River system. 2) A Molecular Phylogeny of the Scombroidei (Teleostei: Perciformes) and a Total Evidence Analysis of the Mackerels, Tunas, Billfishes and Relatives with B.B. Collette and G.D. Johnson. We are sequencing nuclear markers to estimate the phylogenetic relationships within the perciform suborder Scombroidei from partial sequence of the recombination activating gene 2 and from the single-copy nuclear locus, TMO-4c4. We also plan to estimate a total evidence phylogeny of the Scombroidei by combining the nuclear data with published molecular data and morphological data. 3) Total evidence analysis of the Sparidae with K.E. Carpenter. The molecular sequences of the Sparidae produced in my dissertation research are being combined with a large morphological data-set of the Sparidae developed by Carpenter to infer a total evidence based phylogeny of sparid evolution. 4) Also with K.E.

Description of current work: It fishes it is an activity exerted human being has thousand of years. It is regulated by natural physical factors (tides, moon, submarine relief) that they condition the rhythm and the handling of its activities. The bay of All the Saints is an estuarine complex also strong influenced, had to its geologic and hídricas characteristics, for the same factors. Bordered for mangroves and the existence of restingas and it forest Atlantic in its entorno, constituting important ecosystems for the creation, protection and development of a rich e species diversity, the BTS, as also it is called, becomes an environment of vital importance for the preservation and maintenance of the cycles of life of these species. It is also, where fishes it artisan of mullets is practised. This work deals with the activities of this fishes developed for artisan fishing in situated localities in the bay of All the Saints. By means of open interviews and comments of field they had been registered information about: petrechos and arts of fish employed in the capture of mullets, knowledge of the fishing in relation to its fishing activities, impact factors that influence in the accomplishment and production of fishes of mullets and the species of the Mugil sort that they occur in the BTS. The joined species had presented difficulties of identification due to its meristics similarities having been thus considered as a Mugil complex spp. The incentive is suggested as well as in this work the new studies and research in relation to the dynamics and biology of the species of Mugil, the observance of the traditional knowledge of the fishing in these studies for one better exploitation in the handling of the resources existing fishing boats in the bay of All the Saints.

Description of current work: Projects continue on the systematics and historical biogeography of freshwater, coastal and marine fishes from the Indo-Australian Archipelago, particularly northwestern Borneo and Sulawesi, and development of the use of gonad (w/ Harry Grier) and nerve (w/ Jiakun Song) characters in systematic ichthyology. Jeannine Cody (NSF) and I are developing a web site on the reproductive biology of fishes. With Malte Ebach and Chris Humphries (BMNH) I am writing Area Cladistics, a new book on biogeography, for UC Press.

Description of current work: (1) Checklist of Labridae and Scaridae; (2) checklist of Molidae; (3) collaboration for preparing annotated checklists of fishes and a new edition of the catalog of fishes (w/ William N Eschmeyer); (4) study of the role of Walbaum, Seba, Klein and other eighteenth century scholars in systematic ichthyology. Several names (nomina oblita) proposed by Walbaum and other early authors have been found to predate well established taxa (nomina protecta). However, conditions exist to allow "reversal of precedence" as provided by Article 23.9 of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature

Description of current work: Now that biotic survey and inventory work in the Russian Far East is finished (our tenth and last annual expedition was completed successfully in July-September 2003 and the final report to NSF was submitted in March 2004; for a partial summary of results, see Pietsch et al., 2003), I’ve returned to fish systematics in full force, working primarily on revisions of deep-sea anglerfish families of the world (anyone knowing of recently collected material is asked to please contact me). Papers describing new species of anglerfishes (Phyllorhinichthys, Lasiognathus, and Acentrophryne), and another describing a new species of sculpin (Triglops, with J. W. Orr), have been submitted or are now in press or published. A review paper on ceratioid reproductive biology has also been published. A morphological study of lophiiform relationships (with J. W. Orr) is well underway, as is parallel phylogenetic work based on a partitioned Bayesian analysis of whole mitochondrial genome sequences (senior authored by Masaki Miya). Long-term projects include a book on the "Fishes of Puget Sound and Adjacent Waters" and another on "Deep-sea Ceratioid Anglerfishes of the World." Historical work is still on-going: "Isaac Johannes Lamotius and his Paintings of Indo-Pacific Fishes and Other Marine Animals" is in press (with L. B. Holthuis) and an annotated English translation of Georges Cuvier’s "History of the Natural Sciences, from Their Origin to the Present Day," has been submitted. Thanks to the dedication and expertise of Collections Manager Katherine Pearson Maslenikov, the University of Washington Fish Collection is now fully cataloged and available on-line (see www.uwfishcollection.org), 113,256 lots, including 61,830 lots of early life-history stages.

Description of current work: I continue working in my PhD thesis \"Systematics of south-western Atlantic species of Bathyraja\". 300 specimens have been processed and good progress been made. I participated on invitation by the IUCN Shark Specialist Group in the Batoid Assessment Workshop in Cape Town. It was a pleasure, not only for the experience of the workshop itself (learn how to work in that kind of meetings), also because I could meet experts working on batoid worldwide. I will appreciate now as before receiving reprints of all publications dealing with rajoid skate systematics, biology, morphology, anatomy, ecology, particularly of the genus Bathyraja.

Description of current work: I study the progression of morphological changes during embryonic development of teleost fishes using LM, SEM and C&S techniques. I am using this data to formulate a normal staging system that allows comparisons of early developmental patterns among fishes of vastly different incubation periods. These comparisons will identify unique traits, provide character sets, or, within a phylogenetic context, help reconstruct the evolutionary history of early ontogeny in teleosts. At present I am working on American shad, Atlantic salmon, and catfish.

Description of current work: In the course of the Ecoraya project (2003-2006) in Argentina, initiated by me, applied for by my German partner ZMT Bremen and sponsored by a German Foundation, I have visited Mar del Plata for two longer visits again in March to May and Nov./Dec. 2004. Main focus of both visits was further taxonomic methodological introduction and training of my (jointly with Dr. M. Ehrlich of INIDEP MdP) Buenos Aires Univ. Ph.D. student Lic. M.J. San Martin and jointly with her to investigate a large number of Bathyraja spp. samples obtained through INIDEP research cruises and kind support by the FIFD Stanley. Good progress has been made within the time frame set with almost getting finished data sampling for external morphometry, comparative morphology and internal meristics by dissection, along with taking skeletal samples for nearly all species. Additional material for filling remaining gaps is to be expected in 2005, when also continuous processing of claspers and skeletal elements will happen. A study visit of the Ph.D. student to Europe in 2005 will allow re-investigation of type material of most of the SW Atlantic Bathyraja species plus of a lot of additional reference material in the former ISH collection at the ZHM. As due to the forced delayed Ecoraya project start only on 1 July 2003 my participation in the Manaus IUCN-SSG workshop became impossible due to overlap of dates, the IUCN-SSG invited me with my Argentinean Ph.D. student again for the global batoid species assessment workshop held in Cape Town in early September. Our particular joint input was of course focusing on SW Atlantic batoid species, along with some other batoid species covered by myself from other areas. A very well organised workshop in every respect and a pleasure meeting with my old colleagues again after a long time, as well as becoming acquainted with younger new colleagues and students in the field. During a post-workshop trip several ichthyological institutes and collections were visited also for meeting with several old friends and colleagues. My present “shuttle” service between Europe and South America due to Ecoraya does not allow to make progress with other pending research and publication projects of mine simply because of time constraints. Only a new species of Apristurus, in coauthorship with Iglesias and Nakaya, was published. However, prior to one Ecoraya trip I could briefly visit Brazilian colleagues for exchange and discussion about the principally still pending taxonomic situation of most of the South American river stingrays, along with an oral presentation at a private Brazilian Univ. on ichthyological research and the actual need of its improvement and enforcement. Old and new colleagues in chondrichthyan ichthyology, please keep in touch for exchange of publications and research activities.

Description of current work: The skate research project ECORAYA 2003-2006 in Argentina, as introduced in Newsl. Syst. Ichthyol. 2004 (via deepfin), on ecology, biology and biodiversity of 11 Bathyraja species in the SW Atlantic expired on 30 June 2006 but was cost neutrally extended to end of 2006 for getting a number of subjects finished and prepare contributions to the fínal report. Results of this project will be published during following years by the project partners and their associated Licenciatura, M.Sc. and PhD students having been involved in project tasks. Presently a paper is close to submission for describing a new European species of pygmy skates, genus Neoraja, from the upper slope of the Iberian Peninsula south coast (with Séret, Costa, Baro). Am involved in another skate research project on Psammobatis spp. in collaboration with the FIFD Stanley since early 2007. Collaboration with Chilean colleagues is intended in this context. Work on the chondrichthyan samples of cr. 17 RV ‘Vityaz’ in 1988/89 along the Western Indian Ocean will be continued in cooperation with R. Thiel, new fish curator at ZMH, primarily focusing on further descriptions of new taxa.

Description of current work: (1) Systematic revision of the Neogobiinae (Gobiidae) based on nuclear and mitochondrial DNA sequence characters and morphology, with research findings supporting that the genera Neogobius, Proterorhinus, and Mesogobius need to be synonymized as Neogobius and that Proterorhinus marmoratus from the Great Lakes and the Danube River needs to be resurrected/redefined as Proterorhinus (now Neogobius) rubromaculatus and is a separate species from Proterorhinus marmoratus in saline waters, including the type locality from Sevasatopol, Crimea, Ukraine (by an estimated 5 million years of evolutionary divergence); (2) systematics of the black basses Micropterus (Centrarchidae) based on nuclear and mitochondrial DNA sequence characters and osteology (with Ph.D. student W. Calvin Borden); (3) systematic and population genetic relationships of the Percidae, based on nuclear and mitochondrial DNA sequence characters (with Ph.D. student Alex M. Ford), including population genetics of walleye Sander vitreus, yellow perch Perca flavescens, rainbow darter Etheostoma caerulem, log perch Percina caprodes, and greenside darter Etheostoma blennioides throughout the Great Lakes region; (4) systematics of the Blennioidei, based on nuclear and mitochondrial DNA sequence characters (families Clinidae, Labrisomidae, Chaenopsidae, Blenniidae, Tripterygiidae, and Dactyloscopidae). I anticipate having funding for a postdoctoral researcher on the Neogobiinae, beginning summer 2004; if interested, please email me. Would greatly appreciate any additional samples of Neogobiins, particularly from the Caspian Sea area (in 95% EtOH, will pay for shipping). Am planning a research collection trip to the Caspian Sea in fall 2004. Would also appreciate samples of Labrisomus atlanticus from all locations (in 95% EtOH, will pay for shipping)

Description of current work: Studies involving fossil otoliths continue to be the central focus of my research. A presentation entitled "Discovery and Significance of gobiid otoliths from the Middle Eocene (Early Lutetian) Cane River Formation of Louisiana" has been accepted for the 63 rd Annual Meeting of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology. This study extends the range of gobiids in North America to the middle Eocene (earliest Lutetian, approximately 46.5 to 48 million years old). The Cane River Formation gobiids appear to represent the earliest, well-documented occurrence of otolith-based gobiids in the world. A taxonomic and paleoecologic study of almost 2000 fossil otoliths from the Clinchfield Formation (earliest late Eocene) in Georgia is in progress. Work has also begun on further investigation of Late Cretaceous (Maastrichtian) otolith-based fishes from the famous Coon Creek Site in southwest Tennessee. Graduate student Brett Woodward completed his thesis on the taxonomy, paleoecology, and evolution of otolith-based fishes from the Late Cretaceous (Maastrichtian) Kemp Formation of northeast Texas. The study was based on over 1200 otoliths of marine Cretaceous fishes. Another graduate student, Casey Strickland, also completed his thesis entitled "The Use of Fish Otoliths and Analytical Techniques for Paleoenvironmental Interpretation in Archaic Archaeological Sites in North Louisiana." Finally Graduate student Lauri Worley is making progress on her study of bony and cartilaginous fishes (otoliths and skeletal remains) from three Oligocene sites in northeastern Louisiana

Description of current work: RAPD markers are being yielded of several samples of Mimagoniates microlepis from coastal an continental regions in southeastern/southern Brazil. Our research focuses on the test of a vicariant hypothesis due to the orogeny of a coastal mountain range(Serra do Mar). Suposely this moutain range has divided the ichthyofauna and we will use Neighbor-Joining and Generalized Parsimony methods to understand the genetic relationships among the sampled areas.

Description of current work: 1) Phylogeny & taxonomy of inseminating characiforms (those of the Glandulocaudinae & certain of the Cheirodontinae, plus certain inseminating and non-inseminating outgroup characids). All research uses cladistic methodology based on gross anatomical data (osteology etc.), SEM & TEM data, plus histological data, the later three based on the primary and secondary sexual anatomy. Gross anatomical data based on a wide variety of anatomical features. (2) Similar, but more or less incidental research on some catfish groups is also in progress. (3) Some systematic research is being conducted on various other American characids

Description of current work: My research is focused on combining phylogenetics and biomechanics. A major goal of the lab is to generate phylogenies for a number of large coral reef fish groups, including labrids, scarids, damselfishes, and butterflyfishes. Recent NSF funding enabled us to produce the first higher-level tree for the family Labridae, a group of nearly 600 species. We are also interested in higher-level relationships among reef fish families. Phylogenetics provides a valuable framework for analysis of biomechanics; we are studying the evolution of feeding and locomotion in large clades of fishes.

Description of current work: After finishing some works on allozymes of Loricariidae from the Paraná-Paraguai basin, my main focus of interest is now on the morphological taxonomy of Hypostomus from the upper Rio Paraná basin. The great amount of morphological variability, within the nominal and the many possible new species, leads me to work regionally: (1) revision of Hypostomus from the Itaipu reservoir region (w/ C. S. Pavanelli); (2) revision of Hypostomus from the Rio Corumbá basin (w/ C. S. Pavanelli & C. Weber); (3) revision of Hypostomus from the Ivaí and Piquiri rivers (w/ C. S. Pavanelli); (4) description of a new Hypostomus species from the Rio Pardo (w/ F. Langeani); (5) redescription of some Hypostomus from the Piracicaba and Mogi Guaçu rivers (w/ C. S. Pavanelli); (6) revision of Hypostomus from the Rio Cuiabá basin, Rio Paraguai basin (w/ C. Weber & C. S. Pavanelli); (7) description of a new Hypostomus species from the Rio Pilcomayo, Rio Paraguai basin (w/ F. Carvajal); (8) description of some new species of Hypostomus from the Rio Xingú (w/ F. C. T. Lima & J. L. Birindelli); (9) description of five new species of Ancistrus from the upper Rio Paraná basin (w/ S. Fisch Muller & C. S. Pavanelli); (10) Description of some new species of Rineloricaria from the upper Rio Paraná basin (w/ C. S. Pavanelli); (11) a revision of Neoplecostomus from the upper Rio Paraná basin was accomplished and submitted (w/ C. S. Pavanelli & F. Langeani).
