Blue Acara and Green Terrors Get New Genus

10 years 5 months ago - 10 years 5 months ago #21402 by Nuchal Man
Blue Acara and Green Terror like species, formerly in the genus Aequidens, have been moved to a new genus Andinoacara (Musilova et. al.). Species included in the genus now are:

- Andinoacar biseriatus
- Andinoacara coeruleopunctatus
- Andinoacar sp. "maracaibo"
- Andinoacara pulcher
- Andinoacara  rivulatus
- Andinoacar sp. "silbersaum"

The author also insists on the elimination of Ivanacara and merging it with Nannacara as well as the merging of the remaining Aequidens spp. with Cichlasoma.

Enjoy,

I have a confession. I'm a cichlaholic.
