The Pygidiidæ : a family of South American catfishes by Carl H Eigenmann ( Book )
10 editions published between 1915 and 1920 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Pygidiidae are a family of South American catfishes distinguished externally by the absence of an adipose fin and by the posterior of the dorsal. Most of them are even more readily distinguished by the presence of spines or thorns on the opercle and interopercle, by twin barbels at the angle of the mouth, and by the absence of all mental barbels. Other characters of the catfishes may be present or absent, and by addition, subtraction, or modification of characters, various subfamilies have been formed. A description of the characteristic structures is given on pages 276-279. The basal habitat of all the members of the family is that of burrowing. The opercular and interopercular spines are an adaptation to their habit of insinuation, which is at the root of the commensalism, parasitism, and worse, to which some highly specialized members of the family are addicted. Nematogenys from central Chile, the only representative of the Nematogenyinae, is probably more nearly like the ancestors of the Pygidiidae than other living representatives of the family
