REMARK

An undetermined morphospecies ( Characidium sp., [Fig. 5]) is known from the Maroni drainage basin. It is referred as Characidium sp. 2 in Le Bail et al. (2012), but the particular colour pattern of the individuals collected in the Mitaraka might indicate another undetermined species, only known from Mitaraka, which was referred as Characidium sp. 3 by Melki (2016).
