exsanguis from De Baca County revealed that they fall within the ranges of variation of only the lateral supraocular granules character in A.
77 supraocular 30-55 (24) 23-40 (26) granules, summed from both sides of body Interlabial 35.
They resemble typical Leptotyphiops dulcis in color, with a 1/i supraocular condition, no split occipital scales, and dorsal scale counts varying from 222 to 240 (mean 231.
In addition, four aspects of head scalation were ranked (number-coded) as follows: number of anterior supralabials 2/2 (1), 1/2 (2), 1/1 (3), 0/1 (4), 0/0 (5); number of supraoculars 1/1 (1), 1/0 (2), 0/0 (3); complete separation of parietal scale from posterior supralabial by a postocular scale on both sides (1), touching on one side (2), touching on both sides (3) and number of rows of scales around tail 10 (1), 12 (2).
Head much spinous; nasal, preocular, supraocular, postocular, tympanic, coronal, parietal, and nuchal spines present; upper and posterior margins of orbit provided with many accessory spines; parietal ridge not conspicuous.
3 times in base of the cranium; preocular, postocular, tympanic and parietal spines present, but small and weak; nuchal spines sometimes present; supraocular and coronal spines absent; cranial ridges absent except for the parietal ridges which are low but never scaled over; parietals separated; mesethmoid processes never directed upward; base of cranium markedly curved; ventral process of basisphenoid feeble, never attached to the parasphenoid; nasal spines low, but strong; preorbital lobes without spines; second suborbital bone much wider than long.
Nasal, preocular, supraocular, postocular, tympanic, coronal, parietal, and supratemporal spines invariably present; all major head spines strong, except for the coronal spines, which are weak; supraocular and postocular spines and parietal ridge often rough; sphenotic spines obsolete, occasionally moderate in size.
16, 12-17, n = 58); suprocular scales, 4 and 4; lateral supraocular granules, 16 and 16 (total 32.
The larvae of both are characterized by having 24-25 myomeres, a large triangular gut (54-67% of BL) in postflexion larvae, small spines on the preopercle and interopercle, a smooth supraocular ridge, a small to moderate gap between the anus and the origin of the anal fin, and distinctive pigment patterns.
Field-caught larvae and juveniles were identified as percichthyids by using the characters in Brown and Neira (1998), particularly the combination of a relatively large gut, the small to moderate gap between the anus and origin of the anal fin prior to complete formation of the anal-fin, continuous dorsal fin, fin-ray, and vertebral counts, and head spination including small preopercular spines, a small interopercular spine, and a smooth supraocular ridge.
Results from a canonical analysis of the following continuous variables (code numbers in parentheses) are presented in Table 2 and Figures 6 and 7: length of head (1), snout (2), rostral (4), frontal (6), internasal suture (9), prefrontal suture (10), snout-vent (11); height of rostral (5); diameter of eye (3); width of frontal (7), supraocular (8).
sublineatus (samples 22-24 from southern Brazil, Uruguay, and Argentina) follows: anterior dorsal cephalic surface, involving plates anterior to and including frontal and supraoculars, gray; frontals and posterior surfaces of prefrontals and internasals edged with diffuse brown (Fig.
The supraocular, coronal, 3rd inferior infraorbital, and 2nd superior infraorbital spines did not occur on any of the fish examined.
7 percent of the granules around midbody lying between the paravertebral stripes, 38 femoral pores combined, 31 subdigital lamellae of the longest toe of the left pes, nine circumorbital scales combined, 20 lateral supraocular granules on the left side, eight supraocular scales combined, 15 mesoptychial scales bordering the gular fold, and large platelike postantebrachial scales (analyses follow Duellman and Zweifel, 1962; Walker, 1981).
