Characidium borellii has been considered a valid species from Argentina by the following authors:

remarks:
This species was treated as valid and from Argentina by Pozzi (1945:258) and Ringuelet & Arámburu (1962:35). Ringuelet et al. (1967:188) considered Characidium borellii ‘especie limítrofe’, meaning from neighbouring countries, with San Pablo, Paraguay [and not ‘San Pablo, Tucuman’ !], as type locality. López et al. (1987:20) also listed the species as ‘limítrofe’. In López et al. (2003) it was not listed at all. In CLOFFSCA it was listed as valid and from Argentina. [See section ‘literature’ for these]
Gery et al. (2001) give as explanation for the wrong type locality that Ringuelet et al. (1967) probably followed a lapsus of Eigenmann.
