Guinot & de Mazancourt (2020, EJOT, 671: 14) - Remarks on Odiomaris aff. pilosus from the Iouanga River and two other streams A lot of specimens obtained belatedly in the course of our research poses a problem: collected in the Iouanga River on 17 November 2016 (see Fig. 10) (MNHN-IU-2018-2999) and previously identified to Odiomaris pilosus, they split into two species: four males are certainly O. pilosus, but about twenty individuals of various sizes (a few males and a larger number of females) do not correspond either to this species or to Richerius marqueti gen. et sp. nov.; nor is it identifi able with Odiomaris estuarius. The same unidentifi ed species was found in another stream of the North Province and is believed to inhabit another stream in the South Province (Fig. 10) (manuscript in progress).
