Simpsonichthys myersi

The Simpsonichthys myersi lives in the benthopelagic, non-migratory, freshwater, pH range: 6.0 - 6.8, dH range: 8 environment.

Simpsonichthys myersi was considered to be closely related to Nematolebias both in morphological (Costa, 1996, 1998) and molecular (Hrbek & Larson, 1999) analyses. However, Xenurolebias is here hypothesized to be closer related to other species assemblages of Simpsonichthys than to Nematolebias. More
