welcome at PecesCriollos

The aim of this page is to provide a permanently updated list of the freshwater fishes from Argentina and Uruguay for the ichthyological community and anyone else interested in the subject.

PecesCriollos is based for Argentina on the CLOFFAR published by Mirande & Koerber in 2015 .
The basis for the Uruguay-section is the CLOFFUY released by Litz & Koerber in 2014.
All systematical changes that have been published since then, will allways be included in as soon as possible.
