Serrasalmus maculatus: a valid species from Argentina

first record from Argentina:
Serrasalmus maculatus Kner, 1858

published in:
Jégu, M. & G.M. dos Santos (2001):
Mise au point à propos de Serrasalmus spilopleura Kner, 1858 et réhabilitation de S. maculatus Kner, 1858 (Characidae, Serrasalminae).
Cybium 25 (2): 119-143

remarks:
Jégu & dos Santos recognize Serrasalmus maculatus as a valid species that has been considered a synonym of S. spilopleura by many authors. Serrasalmus maculatus was recently recorded from Argentina as comparative material (CI-FML 3827 from Salta province, La Unión, Pozo de los Yacarés, río Bermejo) in the description of Nans indefessus. This is the first recorded specimen of this species for Argentina as the list of examined material provided by Jégu & Dos Santos does not include Argentinean specimens.
They provide a list of works in which the there treated S. spilopleura are references of S. maculatus.
