Malabarba, L.R., S.H. Weitzman & T. Litz (2004):
Hyphessobrycon melanopleurus uruguayensis Messner, 1962, an available name and a senior synonym of Cyanocharax macropinna Malabarba & Weitzman, 2003 (Ostariophysi: Characidae).
Neotropical Ichthyology 2 (2): 99-102

abstract (from publication):
Hyphessobrycon melanopleurus uruguayensis, Astyanacinus platensis, and Astyanax stenohalinus, published in a mimeographed paper by Messner in 1962 are considered available names. The subspecific name H. melanopleurus uruguayensis is recognized as a senior synonym of Cyanocharax macropinna Malabarba & Weitzman, 2003, and therefore referred to as Cyanocharax uruguayensis (Messner, 1962), new combination.

Despite the fact that Cyanocharax macropinna now is a junior synonym, following § 67.1.2 of the ICZN, this taxon still is the type species of the genus Cyanocharax.
