Rineloricaria sp.


Rineloricaria sp. cf. R. lima ( Kner, 1853)

Figure 4I

Geographic distribution: Unknown.

Diagnosis: In this study we refer this species as Rineloriaria sp. cf. R. lima due to similarity of the specimens from the Piraí drainage with specimens of this genus collected in the Paraíba do Sul previously identified as Rineloricaria cf. lima by other authors (e.g. Fichberg 2008). The taxonomic status of R. lima , however, is uncertain because the type material is lost, and the type locality is unknown.
