Revision of genus Apistogramma
For all you apisto aquarists, this may be of interest. The genus Apistogramma has been revised by three Colombian ichthyologists. Their revision, which I believe only dealt with the Rio Orinoco basin species--some 10 previously known species--has resulted in eight new species being described.

I have not yet seen the entire work, I am awaiting it, but I can link you to the abstract which does not say much beyond what's above but if anyone is interested...

Scroll down two screens and you will come to the Apistogramma item. It is in Spanish but you can use something like Bing translator if you are running Windows 7 (and perhaps others too).

I can say that this genus has long been considered in need of revision, but having not yet seen the work I don't know how extensive this may be.
