FROM FRANK MAGALLANES

 

I noted the current status by CAS  S. albus is carried as a synonym of Serrasalmus cariba (Humboldt 1821). I suspect CAS might have made a technical error and the genus should be Pygocentrus cariba and not Serrasalmus cariba. Hopefully, I'll get an answer to my email regarding this and will follow up on this page. You might read my follow up on this species on P. cariba.

A. von] in Humboldt & Valenciennes 1821:173, Pl. 47 (fig. 1) [Voyage de Humboldt et Bonpland, Deuxième partie. v. 2 (Title page 1833); Not regarded as a species; should have been "Serrasalmo Cariba, albus..." according to Fink 1993:669. Invalid name (as Serrasalmus albus) (Machado-Allison et al. 1991:125). •In the synonymy of Pygocentrus cariba (Humboldt 1821) -- (Fink 1993:669, Nico 2001:139  with comments, Machado-Allison 2002:58, Jégu in Reis et al. 2003:189). •In the synonymy of Serrasalmus cariba (Humboldt 1821).
