Description of Fonchiiloricaria nanodon by RODRIGUEZ, ORTEGA and COVAIN. This species is not known in the hobby. Unfortunately its distibution at Rio Huallaga close to Tingo Maria is not very popular for commercial fishermen.

 Jul 2009:

Description of Loricaria birindellii by THOMAS and SABAJ.

This species was found in Rio Xingú. It presents one of the less loricariinae species with an L-Number. It is known as L10.

L. lata was supposed being L10 in former times. But with its markable coloration in front of the dorsal fin, L. birindellii take this place.

Copeia 2010, No. 2, 274–283.


 Dec 2009:

Description of Lamantichthys avacaneiro and Lamontichthys parakana by Carvalho Paixão and Toledo-Piza. Both species were found in Rio Tocantins. This locality is far away from the habitat of all other described Lamontichthys species.


Thanks a lot to Andrea de CARVALHO PAIXÃO for providing images of Lamantichthys avacaneiro, L. parakana and also L. maraceibero.
