PEQUENO R., Germán y SAEZ B., Sylvia. PROBLEMS IN THE AMOUNT OF CEPHALIC CIRRI PATCHES IN FISHES OF GENUS CALLICLINUS GILL 1860 (OSTEICHTHYES, LABRISOMIDAE). Gayana (Concepc.) [online]. 2005, vol.69, n.1, pp. 153-159. ISSN 0717-6538. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-65382005000100019.
The existence of fishes of the genus Calliclinus with less than three patches of nape cirri, produce systematic and taxonomic problems, mainly confussion with the genus Auchenionchus Gill, in which one of the diagnostic characteristics is to have two patches. The problem is analyzed on the basis of 543 specimens. The main conclusion is that both described taxa are valid, in spite of this problem
