Cheirodon ibicuhiensis   Eigenmann, 1915

type locality:
Brazil, Rio Grande do Sul, Cacequi, Rio Ibicuí, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil

Cheirodon ibicuhiensis was collected in 2001 from a small tributary of the río Uruguay in the Ubajay district, Entre Rios province, just north of the Parque Nacional El Palmar (ZFMK 39694-699).
Malabarba (2003) lists this species for the Uruguay river basin in Argentina without providing detailed locality data. Country assignments in Catalogue of Fishes and Fishbase are based on Malabarba.
The distribution of this species in Argentina was apparently confirmed recently by Mantinian et al. (2006).
