Stefano Valdesalici: A new annual killifish: Moema funkneri (Cyprinodontiformes: Rivulidae)  from the Bolivian Amazon

Abstract
A new annual killifish species, Moema funkneri, is described from a seasonal pool in the Río Grande drainage, a tributary of Río Mamoré, Amazon basin, Bolivia. The new taxon is similar to M. heterostigma and M. ortegai/M. quiii by males possess oblique rows of red brown dots on flanks. It differs from all known congeners by the combination of the aforementioned color pattern, short pectoral fins, presence of almost dark yellow anal fin, broad orange margin on ventral and posterior portions of caudal fin, and a relatively high number of scales in the lateral line, transverse series, and circumpeduncular series.
