New Curimatid, Cyphocharax laticlavius (Ostariophysi, Characiformes), from Amazonian Ecuador, with a Major Range Extension for C. gouldingi
Cyphocharax laticlavius, new species, is described from Amazonian Ecuador. It is distinguished from congeners by the combination of a dark midlateral stripe originating at the hypural joint and extending to at least the vertical line through the midbase of the dorsal fin, possession of 31 or 32 pored lateral-line scales, and by the extreme reduction of the sixth infraorbital. The distribution of Cyphocharax gouldingi, previously known only from the eastern portions of the Amazon basin and adjoining drainages of Brazil, is extended to Ecuador.
