I received a wild caught pair of A. sp. Algodon for Julio
Melgar recently. It is a species that keys out to be A.
eunotus. This is one of the most colorful forms of A.
eunotus I have seen. Bright orange tail, blue/green scales -
subtly beautiful. This fish comes from the Rio Algodon, a
tributary of the Rio Putumayo (northeastern Peru). A.
eunotus is not known to occur in the Putumayo drainage -
until now.

I called Oliver to see what he could add to his column info. It's a fish
reminiscent of eunotus in shape. It has a brilliant red caudal, as in
the photo. It's a red that's stronger than on a sp. Mamore, and which
covers more are of the caudal tham a mcmasteri. The red is not

The distribution seems quite restricted to a small area in the basin of
the Araguia. As it's new, beautiful and rare, it's up there in price.
I didn't see it myself, unfortunately. Wish I had, but I can only pass
on Oliver's comments.
