Herichthys cyanoguttatus

(Editor Note by Juan Miguel Artigas Azas: The present article as originally appeared, was released before the publication by Kullander in 1983 of "A revision of the South American Cichlid Genus Cichlasoma (Teleostei: Cichlidae)." In this publication, the genus Cichlasoma is restricted to some South American species closely related to the type species, Cichlasoma bimaculatum. Since then, the Herichthys genus has been accepted by people working with Central American cichlid taxonomy. In an attempt to avoid confusion and take advantage of the possibility of updating electronic publications in the WWW, I have updated in this article the genus name of Herichthys cyanoguttatus and other Herichthys species mentioned in this paper to reflect their current generic status. For details, please check the document in this home page about Herichthys).
