Eartheater now in Argentina

For the Gymnogeophagus lovers out there, a species previously never found in Argentina has been discovered in the río Uruguay basin in Misiones. This beautiful little eartheater, G. lipokarenos, possesses some striking yellow color on the ventral half that complements a brilliant blue on the body and red/orange on the caudal and dorsal fins.  For some great photos, see the short paper “First record of Gymnogeophagus lipokarenos Malabarba, Malabarba & Reis, 2015 (Teleostei: Cichliformes) from Argentina“.
