published in:
Piálek, L., O. Rícan, J. Casciotta & A. Almirón (2010):
Crenicichla hu, a new species of cichlid fish (Teleostei: Cichlidae) from the Paraná basin in Misiones, Argentina.
Zootaxa 2537: 33-46

comment (from publication):
We also confirm the presence of Crenicichla mandelburgeri in Misiones.
Our material was compared with material from the type localities of C. mandelburgeri (both morphology and the ND2 gene sequences; not shown). This taxon, however, demonstrates geographical variation as well as phylogeographic structure (Fig. 1), and we thus cannot rule out the presence of a species complex; the specimens from Piray-Guazu (haplotypes C15, C17) that infringe on the monophyly of this species are therefore referred to as C. cf. mandelburgeri.
