RESUMO

Vertebras numbers are related to mymere numbers, consequently are a useful tool for identifying the species of fish larvae. We present here vertebrae counts and estimations of the number of myomeres for 29 species of Characiformes which have their reproduction linked to the Amazon river. We also analyse the potencial of vertebrae counts for the identification of the larvae.
