Kullander, S.O. and E.J.G. Ferreira. 2006. A review of the South
American cichlid genus Cichla, with descriptions of nine new species
(Teleostei: Cichlidae). Ichthyological Exploration of Freshwaters, 17:
289-398


Abstract

/Cichla/, with the junior synonym /Acharnes/, is widely distributed in
the Amazon, Tocantins, and Orinoco river basins, and in the smaller
rivers draining the Guianas to the Atlantic Ocean. Within South America
transplantations are recorded from the Paraná and Paraguay river
drainages in Paraguay and Brazil, and the Paraíba do Sul and Paraguaçu
rivers in Brazil. The genus comprises 15 species recognized by external
characters of which colour pattern and meristics are most significant.

In six species juveniles possess three dark blotches on the side and a
dark band connecting the posterior blotch to the dark blotch at the
caudal-fin base: /Cichla ocellaris/ is known from the Guianas, including
the Marowijne, Suriname, Corantijn, Demerara, and Essequibo river
drainages, and also the upper Rio Branco in Brazil. /Cichla orinocensis/
is known from the Negro and Orinoco river drainages in Brazil, Colombia,
and Venezuela. /Cichla monoculus/ is widespread in the floodplains of
the Amazon basin, in Colombia, Peru, and Brazil, and also collected from
rivers of Amapá in Brazil, and the lower Oyapock River on the border
between Brazil and French Guiana. /Cichla nigromaculata/ is known from
the upper Rio Orinoco in Venezuela and, tentatively, the middle Rio
Negro in Brazil. /Cichla kelberi/, new species, is restricted to the
Tocantins river basin, but also found transplanted in the Paraná and
Paraíba do Sul river drainages and reported from the Nordeste region of
Brazil. /Cichla pleiozona/, new species, occurs in the Madre de Dios,
Beni, and Guaporé river drainages in Bolivia and Brazil, and in the Rio
Jamari in Brazil. A lectotype is fixed for /Cychla toucounarai/ which is
a synonym of /Cichla monoculus/.

Juveniles and young of the remaining nine species, in addition to the
three midlateral blotches, possess a dark horizontal band extending from
the head to the dark blotch at the caudal-fin base: /Cichla mirianae/,
new species, is restricted to the upper Tapajós river drainage, in the
Juruena and Teles Pires rivers, and the upper Xingu river drainage in
Brazil. /Cichla melaniae/, new species, is restricted to the lower Xingu
river drainage in Brazil. /Cichla piquiti/, new species, is restricted
to the Tocantins river basin, but transplanted in the Paraná river basin
in Brazil and Paraguay. /Cichla thyrorus/, new species, occurs in the
Rio Trombetas in Brazil, upstream from the Cachoeira Porteira. /Cichla
jariina/, new species, occurs in the Rio Jari in Brazil, where it is so
far recorded only from the region of the Santo Antonio rapids. /Cichla
pinima/, new species, occurs in the lower parts of southern tributaries
of the Rio Amazonas in Brazil (Tapajós, Curuá-Una, Xingu), and the lower
Tocantins and Capim rivers. Tentatively identified specimens are
recorded from the Amapá, Araguari, and Canumã rivers in Brazil. /Cichla
pinima/ occurs translocated in the Rio Paraguaçu in southeastern Brazil,
and is reported as translocated from the northeast of Brazil. /Cichla
vazzoleri/, new species, occurs in the Uatumã and lower Trombetas rivers
in Brazil. /Cichla temensis/ is known from the Negro and Orinoco river
drainages in Brazil, Colombia, and Venezuela. It is also recorded from
blackwater rivers along the Rio Solimões-Amazonas in Brazil (Tefé, Rio
Puraquequara, Rio Uatumã, and Silves). /Cichla intermedia/ is restricted
to the Casiquiare and Orinoco river drainages in Venezuela.

Because of the considerable cost of production with all photos in color,
we have no reprints for distribution. The paper has 110 pp., 93 figures,
27 tables.
