considered a valid species from Argentina:
Pterolebias bokermanni   Travassos, 1955

type locality:
Brazil, Território de Guaporé, Rio Guajará-Mirim. Holotype: MNRJ 8672

Pterolebias bokermanni was revalidated from being a synonym of P. longipinnis by Costa (2003:293): “…Pterolebias bokermanni Travassos (name sometimes considered as synonym of P. longipinnis Garman, but valid according to a study in progress by the author),…”.
In CLOFFSCA (Costa in Reis et al., 2003:533; see section ‘literature’) he confirmes this by quoting P. bokermanni for Amazon and Paraguay River basins in Brazil, Bolivia, Paraguay and Argentina, while restricting P. longipinnis to the Amazon basin in Brazil.
Herefor all records of P. longipinnis for Argentina correspond to Pterolebias bokermanni.
