Viejita he had bought. It turned out to be a mixed flock of two species, and I could not identify them at first glance. In his papers they were labeled as A. Viejita Mitu, so I expect it could be a bycatch group from the Mitù area in Columbia ??
    Anyway, I brought home a pair of the two species to find out if they can be identified..

    Best regards, Søren.

    The first fish belong to the iniridae-group and probably A. uaupesi. The second fish belongs to the brevis-group and probably is A. megaptera.
