TENCATT, Luiz F. C.; BRITTO, Marcelo R.  and  PAVANELLI, Carla S.. A new species of Corydoras Lacépède, 1803 (Siluriformes: Callichthyidae) from the upper rio Paraná basin, Brazil. Neotrop. ichthyol. [online]. 2014, vol.12, n.1, pp.89-96. ISSN 1679-6225.

A new species of Corydorasis described from three tributaries of the rio Ivaí drainage, upper rio Paraná basin, Paraná State, Brazil. The new species can be distinguished from most of its congeners by the presence of three nasal pores. Other diagnostic features are the lower number of serrations in posterior margin of pectoral and dorsal spines and presence of four to six small black blotches along the midline of the flank. The possible mimetic relationship between the new species and Characidium heirmostigmatais discussed.

Keywords : Characidium heirmostigmata; Corydoradinae; Mimicry; Rio Ivaí; Taxonomy.
