Apistogramma Species List
By Species-Groups/Complexes

As of October 2017

Compiled by Mike Wise

The genus Apistogramma is one of the most species-rich genera of cichlid fishes in South America. Only the genus Crenicichla can compete with it in numbers of species. Presently, there are 88 scientifically described species in the genus – not including 2 questionable (Sedis Incertae) species, 1 Apistogrammoides species, nor 1 Taeniacara. There are probably three times as many presently undescribed species that have entered the hobby over the past 40 years.This includes a large number of distinct populations, which I call “forms”, and color morphs that may or may not be species in their own right.

I have been compiling lists of Apistogramma species for over 30 years, first for the Apistogramma Study Group and now for several web based apisto sites. The following list is my opinion of which are valid species and which are merely geographic populations. My list is based on information provided to me by apistophiles from all over the world. It is strongly influenced by the works of Kullander, Koslowski and Römer, and the preliminary genetic work by Miller &Schliewen and Taugard et al. I doubt that others with an extensive knowledge of the genus will agree completely with this list, yet I feel it is accurate for the most part. It will undoubtedly change – as it has in the past – as new data appear.

The following compilation follows a format that I have found workable over the past 30+ years. Species (described and undescribed) that I believe are distinct and valid are listed in alphabetical order. “Forms” that I believe are only geographic populations of a species are indicated as such by being listed below the species to which I believe they belong, but they are shown indented. Many species have been given more than one name. These are listed in “Other Names”. Where there is more than one common name for an undescribed species or form, I tend to use the oldest or most popular published name, as opposed to commercial/trade names. There are exceptions, however. I try to avoid using names that look like scientifically described names, even though they are not (e.g. Pandurini, Wilhelmi). These have already caused confusion among some hobbyists about what is a valid scientifically described species and what is not. Instead, I give preference to location names, followed by descriptive names. I also try to avoid common names that might be confusing, such as my using the name A. sp. “Cruzeiro” (for the city of Cruzeiro do Sul) instead of A. sp.“Juruá” that can be confused with A. juruensis. Next, I indicate the interrelationships for each species by listing each species in a specific “Species-group/-complex/-subcomplex”. Since my last published list I have added one more species-complex to the regani-group, plus the norberti-group. More will undoubtedly be added as we learn more about the genus. My groupings are based on work originally published by Kullander (1980; 1986), Koslowski (1985; 2002) and the preliminary genetic studies published Miller & Schliewen (2005) as well as more recent discoveries. Finally, I provide a generalized “Distribution” for each form, if known.
