It was presented a couple of years ago in a German magazine (DATZ) as A. 
sp. "Arua". It is a cacatuoides-group species, and different from all 
other Apistos in lower Amazon (the Rio Arua is a tributary to Rio 
Arapiuns, and the latter to Tapajós).

Cheers.

P.S. I would like to know in which magazine/scientific journal the 
description has been published.

Mike asked this question to the Cichlid list and this is the response he
got:

"Published in: Aqua; Journal of Ichthyology and Aquatic
Biology 3 (2): 45-54, according to:

Citation is correct, I have a copy.  Fish collected in small igarape' near
Arua in the lower course of the Rio Arua.  According to the article fish
has been available under the names A. sp. "Arua" and Arua-Apistogramma.  In
fact some of material studied was aquarium bred and studied.  Authors state
these names were used in Stawikoswki (sic) 1997 and Seidel 1997.  Authors
are Romer and Frank Warzel.  Fish is described as distantly related to
"both the A. cacatuoides group and the A. trifasciata assemblage."  Males
can be distinguished by "a forked tail; extrememly elongate dorsal spine
membranes (2) 3 to 5 (7); a broad longitudinal band extending onto the base
of the caudal fin; large round spots on this band, coinciding with the
positions of the 3rd and 4th vertical bars; (depending on the mood) a
wedge-shaped , caudally tapering, spot in the centre of the anterior half
of the flank beneath the longitudinal band, and three rows of spots of
upright half-moon shape ....Females have a rounded caudal fin, weakly
elongated dorsal membranes 2 and 3, and a bold lateral spot coinciding with
the position of the 3rd vertical bar, with an additional, somewhat fainter,
spot on the 4th bar."

If anyone is interested I can rehash more.  The article has several photos,
the best being a photo of a live adult male in shock coloration while in a
human palm.  There are four additional photos on back cover.  A friend of
mine subscribes and passes the mag on to me.

I'm surprised that no one mentioned the photos of A. arua in Supplement 2 of
Southamerican Cichlids II, under A. sp. Aruá.

I'd have answered sooner but was up in the mountains winter camping with the Boy
Scouts this weekend (10,000'/0ºF / 3000m/-15ºC) and no fires allowed. I must be
out of my mind!!

It has been recently described, belongs to the cacatuoides-group, and 
origins from the Rio Arua, a tributary to upper Rio Arapiuns (Tapajos 
basin) in Para State, Brazil.

Cheers.

Vern,

Yes, the original written introduction of this species, as A. sp. Aruã, was in
German (Seidel, 1997, „Neue" Apistogramma-Art?, DATZ 50(4):213). The scientific
description (Römer & Warzel, 1998, Apistogramma arua sp. n. (Teleostei:
Perciformes: Cichlidae), a new species of dwarf cichlid from the Rio Arapiuns
system, Para State, Brazil, Aqua, J. Ichthyol. &  Aquat. Biol. 3(2):45-54 & 90)
is in English. I have to hand it to Uwe, this is the most complete description of
an apisto yet. Not only did he use (juvenile) specimens preserved in the wild,
but saved some to grow out so we could recognize them in their adult form as
well. This alleviates the problems of trying to ID aquarium fish based on
juvenile type specimens (e.g.. A. sp. Rotkeil vs. A. uaupesi, and probably A.
parva vs. A. agassizii). The time and effort to do this is highly commendable. It
would be nice if all fish descriptions in the future were so complete. There are
a couple of errors in the paper, but they have absolutely no bearing on the
description of A. arua. His photo of "A. maciliensis" will be recognized by many
as actually being one of A. sp. Mamoré (Red tail) & his photo of "A. juruensis"
is actually A. sp. aff juruensis/Pucallpa. At the time of submission (1996 or
1997) these IDs were thought to be correct. It is amazing how quickly thing are
changing in our understanding of this wonderful genus of fish!

ASG members can get a copy of either of these articles (+ English translation of
German article) from me.
