Loricariid Taxa Covered in These Pages


Hemiancistrus sabaji, photo by M.H. Sabaj




Below are links to all of the tribes and genera of the Hypostominae, the Neoplecostominae, and the new subfamily, a page for the Loricariinae, and a page for the Hypoptopomatinae.  This page contains a table where you can search by taxononomy (GO TO TABLE) and a list of all taxa alphabetically (GO TO LIST).  An alphabetical list of genera in synonymy and the genus they are placed in is given after the table (GO TO SYNONYM LIST).  Loricariidae can be separated from all other catfish by having an armor of dermal plates that support odontodes (integumentary teeth) and the lips modified into a suckerlike disk.
