I would suggest that if they were pterolebias shape they were
probably South American :-) The description of long flowing fins seems to
fit Pterolebias or its close relatives and exclude the large Rivulus which
seem to have shorter fins. Longippinnis can grow 6" , fairly dull body
with long caudal and gold spot behind the gills? I havent seen any in the
BKA auctions for a long time. Another species which has been brought in in
commercial imports was first described as Pt. NSC1 then renamed
Trigonichthys sp. these were 6"+ had green/yellow/brown spotted lined body
with very large pectorals and large caudal with an orange or white edge.
Again I havent seen these circulating in the BKA for a long time. Pt
Peruensis are smaller and have striking striped pattern.
Any BKA members in the London groups know of any commercial imports?
I started going through some of the old BKA killinews for references to
NSC1/Trigonichthys but this may take some time with the state of my files.
Moral: get it while you can !!!!!
