Relevant Information:

This specimen was collected by the image contributor in a river near Leticia in Colombia in 2013 although it is now being referred to as Myoglanis sp. 'PERU'. There are three described species in this small genus. M. aspredinoides, M. koepckei and M. potaroensis from the Potaro river in Guyana. Remarks: Brachyglanis, Leptorhamdia and Myoglanis along with Gladioglanis and the members of the Nemuroglanis subclade (Ferraris 1988) were assigned by Lundberg et al. (1991) to a large unnamed monophyletic group characterized by the loss of a free orbital rim around the eye. For further information read the referenced paper by DoNascimiento, C. and J.G. Lundberg, 2005.
