Diagnosis. Pyrrhulina capim  differs from all congeners except P. australis Eigenmann, Kennedy  ( Fig. 2aView Fig), P. brevis Steindachner  ( Fig. 2bView Fig), P. elongata Zarske, Géry  ( Fig. 2cView Fig), and P. filamentosa Valenciennes  ( Fig. 2dView Fig) by having the primary stripe restricted to the head (vs. primary stripe extending beyond head, reaching the anterior portion of the body but not the vertical through pectoralfin tip in P. eleanorae Fowler  ( Fig. 2eView Fig), P. laeta Cope  , P. lugubris Eigenmann  , P. obermulleri Myers  ( Fig. 2fView Fig), P. stoli Boeseman  ( Fig. 2gView Fig), P. spilota Weitzman  ( Fig. 2hView Fig), and P. vittata Regan  ; reaching at least the vertical through the pelvic-fin origin, but not reaching the vertical through the anal-fin terminus in P. semifasciata Steindachner  ( Fig. 2iView Fig) and P. maxima Eigenmann, Eigenmann  ( Fig. 2jView Fig); or reaching the caudal-fin in P. beni Pearson  , P. marilynae Netto-Ferreira  , and P. zigzag Zarske, Géry  ( Fig. 2kView Fig)). Pyrrhulina capim  differs from P. australis  , P. brevis  , P. elongata  and P. filamentosa  in that the primary stripe reaches the distal edge of the opercle (vs. stripe restricted to snout and sometimes across eye, but always lacking a conspicuous dark postorbital portion). The new species is further distinguished from P. brevis  by the number of premaxillary teeth (outer series: 15-20 vs. 25-27; inner series: 24-31 vs. 38-41), and dentary teeth (outer series: 13-20 vs. 22-26; inner series: 32-45 vs. 50-54). Pyrrhulina capim  further differs from P. australis  by having 10 principal rays on the upper caudal-fin lobe (vs. 9 rays); from P. filamentosa  by possessing fewer scales along the lateral line series (22-25 vs. 25-30); and from P. elongata  by having 10-12 scales in the first longitudinal paired series, with that series reaching posterior to the pelvic-fin origin (vs. no more than 6 scales in that series, with that series falling far short of the vertical through the pelvic-fin origin).

Description. Morphometric data of the holotype and 60 paratypes presented in Tab. 1. Lateral view of male holotype and female paratype in Fig. 1aView Fig and Fig. 1bView Fig, respectively. Body cylindrical, slightly elongate. Greatest body depth anterior to dorsal-fin origin, between pectoral and pelvic fins. Dorsal profile of head straight, slightly concave from upper lip to anterior scales covering parietal and supraoccipital. Dorsal profile of body slightly convex or nearly straight from that point to dorsal-fin origin; gently concave along dorsal-fin base and caudal peduncle near vertical through anal-fin terminus, becoming nearly straight from that point to origin of anterodorsal procurrent ray of caudal fin. Ventral profile of head and trunk convex from lower lip to pelvicfin origin, becoming straight from that point to anal-fin origin. In male specimens, anal-fin base slightly convex, caudal peduncle straight or slightly concave from that point to origin of anteroventral procurrent ray of caudal fin. In female specimens, ventral profile of anal-fin base and caudal peduncle gently concave to origin of anteroventral procurrent ray of caudal fin.

Maxillary with 11(1), 14(1), 15(1), 16(1), 18(1) or 19(1) conical teeth in males, and 7(1), 8(1), 9(3) or 10(1) in females, anterior teeth largest in both sexes. Dentary with two series of conical teeth; outer series with 13(1), 14(2), 15(1), 16(3), 17(1), 18(2), or 20(2); inner series with 32(2), 33(1), 34(1), 35(1), 37(2), 38(1), 42(1), 43(1), 44(1) or 45(1). Inner series of teeth gradually decreasing in size from symphysis to near coronoid process. Lower jaw protruding slightly beyond premaxillary. Branchiostegal rays 3; two articulating with anterior ceratohyal and one with posterior.

Scales cycloid, circuli restricted to anterior border, few radii converging and strongly anastomosed at focus, not forming cells. Lateral line series with 22(3), 23(25), 24*(19) or 25(1) scales; none perforated. Longitudinal series of scales between dorsal and pelvic fins 5. Predorsal scales 10(1), 11(6), 12*(22), 13(21) or 14(1). First paired longitudinal series with 9(2), 10(12), 11*(23), 12(11) or 13(2) scales. Circumpeduncular scales 10*.

Pectoral-fin rays i,10(5), i,11*(18) or i,12(30). Tip of longest pectoral-fin ray falling far short of vertical through pelvic-fin origin. Pelvic-fin rays i,7*(52) or i,8(1); tip of longest pelvic-fin ray reaching anal-fin origin in adult males, but not in juveniles or females. Supraneurals 7(12), positioned anterior to neural spines of centra 7(12) to 13(12). First dorsal-fin pterygiophore inserted posterior to neural spine of centrum 12(3), 13(8) or 14(1). Dorsal-fin rays ii,6(1), iii,6(6), iii,7(2) or ii,8*(48). Distal margin of extended dorsal fin somewhat rounded in females, lanceolate in adult males. Dorsal-fin origin located distinctly closer to caudal fin than to snout tip. Base of last dorsal-fin ray located at vertical through anal-fin origin. Anal-fin rays iii,8(37) or ii,8*(16), with last ray adnate. Profile of extended anal fin rounded in females, somewhat elliptical or lanceolate in males. First anal-fin pterygiophore inserted posterior to haemal arch of centrum 19(8) or 20(4). Adipose fin absent. Caudal fin forked, upper lobe distinctly longer. Caudal-fin principal rays ii,8/7,i(1), ii,8/7,ii(8), ii,8/8,i*(26), i,9/7,ii(2), i,9/8,i(13) or ii,9/8,i(1). Dorsal caudal-fin procurrent rays 4(12). Ventral caudal-fin procurrent rays 4(5) or 5(7). Precaudal vertebrae 17(7) or 18(5); caudal vertebrae 14(3), 15(6) or 16(3).

Color in alcohol. Background color yellowish. Dorsal portion of head light brown from the upper lip to scales overlying parietal bone. Lateral surfaces of head distinctly lighter than dorsum, with dark pigmentation becoming abruptly scarce ventral to primary stripe. Primary stripe heavily pigmented and restricted to the head, pigmenting both jaws, antorbital, infraorbitals 1 and 5 and eye, and reaching posterior margin of opercle or opercular membrane. Ventral portion of head with few, scattered chromatophores. Mid-dorsal, first and second longitudinal series of scales with light brown pigmentation, becoming slightly darker at dorsal-fin base and extending to caudalpeduncle tip. Trunk pigmentation lighter ventrally to third longitudinal series of scales. Scale borders of second and third longitudinal series with discrete, dark pigmentation on edges, homogeneously pigmented near foci, not forming distinct reticulate pattern. Scales of fourth to sixth longitudinal series somewhat pale at focus, with discrete guanine deposition, forming longitudinal series of pale blotches (ranging from yellow to red in life). Abdominal region yellowish with sparse dark chromatophores from isthmus to anal-fin origin. Pectoral fin completely hyaline. Pelvic and anal fins mostly hyaline except for pigmented distal margin in males (see sexual dimorphism). Caudal fin hyaline with scarce chromatophores. Dorsal fin with round blotch at mid-distal portion covering all branched and unbranched rays and intervening membranes.

Sexual dimorphism. Adult males of Pyrrhulina capim  possess the typical sexual dimorphism of Lebiasinidae  ( Netto-Ferreira et al., 2011; Netto-Ferreira, Marinho, 2013), in which the anal-fin rays and all intervening membranes are distinctly thicker and longer than in females, ultimately resulting in broader anal fins in male specimens ( Marinho, Menezes, 2017). Male specimens possess more maxillary teeth than females (11-18 vs. 7-10, respectively). Adult males have dark pigmentation at the distal margin of the anal and pelvic fins that forms a discrete dark band. Pelvic fin of males distinctly longer than those of females. Dorsal-fin of adult males with distinctly elongate dark blotch (vs. ovoid or round blotch in females), extending throughout the median and distal portions of first and second branched rays. Caudal peduncle of adult males usually deeper than in females (12.9%-15.1% vs. 11.0%-13.8%; Fig. 3View Fig).

Geographical distribution. Pyrrhulina capim  is known from the Eastern Amazon, in northern Brazil from the basins of the rio Anapu, rio Capim, rio Guamá, lower rio Xingu, and coastal drainages of the Amazon estuary in the state of Pará ( Fig. 4View Fig).

Ecological notes. Pyrrhulina capim  inhabits the banks of rivers and streams of clear water with moderate flow, sandy substrate and submerged vegetation.

Etymology. The epithet capim  (from the indigenous language Tupi-Guarani meaning: Caá = leaf; Pií = thin, slender) alludes to the rio Capim, a tributary of the rio Guamá, where the first specimens examined by ALN-F were collected. A noun in apposition.

Conservation status. Despite all the human impacts in the known area of occurrence of Pyrrhulina capim  (i.e., deforestation, mining activities, palm tree plantations, cattle activities, among others), there is no information on whether those activities impact populations of that species. That said, P. capim  , has a relatively broad distribution in the Floresta Nacional de Caxiuanã, and possibly in other protected areas such as the Reserva Extrativista (=Resex) Gurupá-Melgaço, Resex Terra Grande-Pracuúba, and protected areas in the upper rio Guamá. Because of that broad area of occurrence (see distribution), it is likely that Pyrrhulina capim  can be classified as a species of Least Concern (LC) according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) categories and criteria (IUCN Standards and Petitions Subcommittee, 2017).

Remarks. Pyrrhulina capim  shares with all congeners the generic synapomorphies indicated by Netto-Ferreira (2010): the presence of two series of premaxillary teeth; the lack of postcleithrum 3; the dorsalmost, paired longitudinal series of scales not reaching posterior to the dorsal-fin origin; and the coronomeckelian bone approximately ten times shorter than Meckelian cartilage. Despite sharing a short primary stripe with P. australis  , P. brevis  , P. elongata  and P. filamentosa  , it is not currently clear whether P. capim  is more closely related to those four species than to other species of Pyrrhulina  , because no phylogenetic hypotheses for the genus exists. That said, the characters discussed by Netto-Ferreira, Marinho (2013) - (i.e., the reduction of the number of precaudal vertebrae; the presence of 9 caudal-fin principal rays on the upper lobe; the absence of postcleithrum 2; and the lack of filamentous rays on dorsal) suggest that P. australis  may share a closer relationship with other small species of Pyrrhulina  , such as P. marilynae  , P. vittata  and P. zigzag  .

Specimens of Pyrrhulina capim  have been commonly identified as Pyrrhulina brevis  in the literature ( Montag et al., 2008; 2009; Raiol et al., 2012; Silva-Oliveira et al., 2016; Ferreira et al., 2018) and in many collections. Such identifications seem to have been induced by the broad definition of the Pyrrhulina brevis  -group proposed by Géry (1977). According to that definition, the P. brevis  -group includes deep bodied species with low longitudinal scale counts (20-23), and a short primary stripe restricted to the eye or the opercle. That “diagnosis” fits not only P. brevis  , but also most stout bodied, short striped species of the genus such as P. australis  , P. brevis  , P. capim  , P. lugubris  , and P. obermulleri  . In that contribution Géry suggested the possibility that these forms instead of distinct species would represent variations within a single, widespread species “with slightly divergent characters,” contradicting his own observations in a previous study ( Géry, 1972). The subsequent descriptions of Pyrrhulina zigzag  , originally recognized among the syntypes of P. brevis ( Zarske, Géry, 1997)  and P. elongata  , a species with short primary stripe but low body depth ( Zarske, Géry, 2001) have weakened the case for a single, widespread Pyrrhulina brevis  . Similarly, the likely erroneous synonymy of P. rachoviana  with P. australis ( Zarske, Géry, 2004)  , which represents another operational group in the genus indicates substantial imprecision in Géry’s (1977) group definitions, and suggests a substantial lack of evidence for their reality. Hence, the recognition and usage of such “groups” may be misleading, and they should be abandoned until broad phylogenetic and revisionary studies are available for the genus.
