That second link didn't work either, but when I logged in to PFK I found it. I suspect one has to be registered to see some of these things; I have followed several links from other places with the same result.
Yes, there are some 34 new species in this genus not yet described, as noted in the profile of Hypancistrus furunculus. As new streams are explored for the first time, new fish are being discovered. We can't know how many species may become extinct in the SA and SE Asian rainforests (due to habitat destruction) that we don't even know about yet, and they will be gone before we find them. Sad really.
