William F. Smith-Vaniz and Bruce B. Collette: Fishes of Bermuda, pp. 165-186

Abstract
Here we add a recently described species of Hyporhamphus (Hemiramphidae), recognize Chromis bermudae (Pomacentridae) as valid, and remove Parasphyraenops atrimanus (Serranidae) from the list of Bermuda endemics, changing the total number of Bermuda endemic fishes to seven species, eight if Clepticus sp. (Labridae) proves to be new, excluding from consideration several land-locked species of Fundulus. First Bermuda records are documented for 24 species but five others, Carcharodon carcharias, Hyporhamphus unifasciatus, Rypticus subbifrenatus Clepticus parrae and Eleotris pisonis, based on misidentifications, are removed. Biological or distributional notes are included for 22 species and nomenclatural changes apply to another 12 species. Reproductions of recently discovered historical watercolors or pencil sketches by Colonel H. W. Drummond-Hay are provided for 14 species of Bermuda fishes.

F. B. M. Vermeulen, S. Valdesalici and J. R. Garcia-Gil: Rivulus tomasi (Teleostei: Cyprinodontiformes: Rivulidae), a new killifish from Tobogán de la Selva, middle Orinoco river drainage in the Amazonas Territory, southwest Venezuela, pp. 187-192

Abstract
Rivulus tomasi is described from Tobogán da la Selva, a tributary of the middle Rio Orinoco south of Puerto Ayacucho in the Amazonas Territories, southwest Venezuela. It is similar to R. amanapira, R. rectocaudatus, R. tecminae and R. staecki in having a truncate caudal fin, but differs by a unique combination of character states: tip of pelvic fin reaching between base of 4th and 5th anal fin ray in males, and 39-42 scales in longitudinal series. Rivulus tomasi differs from other Rivulus spp. (except R. amanapira and R. uakti) by unique caudal fin coloration.

Gerald R. Allen, Mark V. Erdmann and Ni Luh Astria Yusmalinda: Paracheilinus rennyae, a new species of flasherwrasse (Perciformes: Labridae) from southern Indonesia, pp. 193-206

Abstract
The Indo-Pacific labrid fish Paracheilinus rennyae is described from four male specimens, 52.2-60.4 mm SL, collected in 15-21 m depth off southwestern Flores Island in the Lesser Sunda island chain of Indonesia. It is distinguished from most congeners by the lack of filamentous extensions of the dorsal fin rays in males and a rounded caudal fin margin, a combination of features shared only by P. octotaenia (Red Sea). It differs from the Red Sea species in having 13-14 rakers (vs. 16-18) on the first gill arch and several colour pattern differences. Genetic analysis (CO1) indicates it is closely related to P. angulatus from the Philippines and northern Borneo (Brunei, Sabah, and Kalimantan), but the two species exhibit marked differences in the shape of the median fins.

Hans Recknagel, Henrik Kusche, Kathryn R. Elmer and Axel Meyer: Two new endemic species in the Midas cichlid species complex from Nicaraguan crater lakes: Amphilophus tolteca and Amphilophus viridis (Perciformes, Cichlidae), pp. 207-224

Abstract
The Neotropical Midas cichlid species complex (Amphilophus citrinellus Günther 1864) has become a model system for investigating the mechanisms of speciation and adaptive radiation. In several instances ancestral Midas cichlids from the great Nicaraguan lakes have colonized nearby crater lakes where they continued to evolve in isolation. Each crater lake can be seen as a “natural experiment” of sympatric and allopatric divergence. Several ecologically and genetically well-differentiated crater lake species have already been identified, but the species complex is not fully taxonomically resolved. Here, two new endemic Nicaraguan crater lake cichlids species are described: Amphilophus tolteca n. sp., a slender-bodied species which is endemic to the ca. 1,245 year old Lake Asososca Managua and Amphilophus viridis n. sp., an endemic benthic species from Lake Xiloá. Amphilophus tolteca morphologically resembles previously described limnetic species from the crater lakes Apoyo and Xiloá with a depressed, elongated body. However, A. tolteca is geographically isolated and genetically distinct from those species and from the putative generalist ancestral species. Amphilophus viridis resembles the Xiloá species A. amarillo in terms of body shape, but is distinct in coloration and ecology, and is genetically differentiated from all other syntopic species.

Hamid Reza Esmaeili, Ali Gholamifard, Golnaz Sayyadzadeh, Benafsheh Parsi, Soror Mirghiasi and Somayeh Ghasemian: New record of the convict cichlid, Amatitlania nigrofasciata (Günther, 1867), from the Middle East (Actinopterygii: Cichlidae), pp. 225-229

Abstract
This paper reports the first record of a population of the Neotropical convict cichlid, Amatitlania nigrofasciata (Günther, 1867) from Iran, the second record of this species from the Middle East and the only known extant wild population in the region. This new record is based on collection of eight specimens of a leucistic strain of A. nigrofasciata taken from Golabi Spring, a fresh warmwater site in the Kol River (Hormuzgan basin). Source of the population is most likely due to releases by local people. Specimens captured included small and large individuals, indicating possible establishment.

Scope

aqua is an international journal which publishes original scientific articles in the fields of systematics, taxonomy, bio-geography, ethology, ecology, and general biology of fishes since 1994. Papers on freshwater, brackish, and marine fishes will be considered. aqua is fully refereed and aims at publishing manuscripts within 2-4 months of acceptance. In view of the importance of colour patterns in species identification and animal ethology, authors are encouraged to submit colour illustrations in addition to descriptions of coloration. It is our aim to provide the international scientific community with an efficiently published journal meeting high scientific and technical standards.

Call for Papers

The editors welcome the submission of original manuscripts which should be sent in digital format to the scientific editor. 
Full length research papers and short notes will be considered for publication. There are no page charges and colour illustrations will be published free of charge. Authors will receive one free copy of the issue in which their paper is published and an e-print in PDF format.

Special Publications

Since 2003 Aquapress publishes a series of Special Publications, which are produced at irregular intervals. All Special Publications have about 100 or more pages and are available separately from regular issues of aqua. Enquiries about subscriptions and prices should be sent to the publisher at the address given here above or by e-mail, using the contact form
