abstract (from publication):
Actualmente la biodiversidad íctica conocida del Parque Nacional Iguazú comprende 104 especies, de las cuales dos corresponden a especies de “dientudos” del género Oligosarcus: O. longirostris y O. menezesi. En esta contribución se da a conocer una tercera especie de este género registrada dentro de dicho parque: Oligosarcus pintoi. Este nuevo hallazgo es de relevancia porque, además, constituye el primer reporte de esta especie en Argentina en la cuenca del río Paraná medio.
Currently the known ichthyological biodiversity of the Iguazú National Park is composed by 104 species, two of which correspond to species of “dientudos” of the genus Oligosarcus: O. longirostris and O. menezesi. In this contribution, it is reported within the Park a third species of that genus: Oligosarcus pintoi. This new finding is relevant because it constitutes the first record of the species both in Argentina and in the middle Paraná River basin.
