New Congo fish species

Eva Decru, Emmanuel Vreven, Jos Snoeks (RMCA Ichthyology unit) and Oumar Sadio (Institut de Recherche pour le Développement, Dakar, Senegal) have just described a new fish species. Called Brycinus epuluensis, it is found in the DR Congo in the Epulu river, a small tributary of the Ituri, in the middle Congo basin.

 

The article “Brycinus epuluensis, a new species from the Epulu River (Congo basin), Africa (Teleostei: Alestidae)” was published in the journal Ichthyological Exploration of Freshwaters in April 2016.
