SHIBATTA, Oscar Akio. A new species of Microglanis(Siluriformes: Pseudopimelodidae) from the upper rio Tocantins basin, Goiás State, Central Brazil. Neotrop. ichthyol. [online]. 2014, vol.12, n.1, pp.81-87. ISSN 1679-6225.

A new species of Microglanis is described from the upper rio Tocantins basin, Barro Alto, Goiás State, Brazil. This species is distinguished from the others by presenting a unique color pattern, consisting of round spots in the flank between the larger dark brown blotches. Moreover, it can be distinguished by the combination of the following features: caudal fin emarginate, the upper lobe slightly larger than the lower, lateral line relatively long, reaching vertical through posterior margin of the pelvic fin, and light stripe on supra-occipital region absent or very narrow and with irregular shape.
