aequifasciata, Symphysodon discus var. Pellegrin [J.] 1904:250 [Mémoires de la Société Zoologique de France v. 16 (nos 2-4); ref. 3419] Santarém, Amazonas, Brazil. Lectotype: MNHN 1902-0130. Paralectotypes: MNHN 1902-0134 (1) Tefé, 0135 (1) Tefé. Type catalog: Blanc 1962:222 [ref. 20868]. Symphysodon is masculine, aequifasciata is apparently an adjective; it should be aequifasciatus. Lectotype designation by Géry & Bleher 2005:135 [ref. 29228] invalid as the specimen is not clearly identified (either MNHN 1902-0134 or 1902-0135); perhaps confused in Bleher et al. 2007:172 [ref. 29227]. See errata in v. 13 (no. 1):42. Ready et. al. 2006:207 [ref. 29520] selected MNHN 1902-0130 as lectotype. See also discussion in Bleher & Bailey 2011:1306 [ref. 31397]. •Valid as Symphysodon aequifasciata Pellegrin 1904 -- (Ortega & Vari 1986:20 [ref. 9708], Kullander 1986:226 [ref. 12439], Fuller et al. 1999:447 [ref. 25838]). •Valid as Symphysodon aequifasciatus Pellegrin 1904 -- (Kullander in Reis et al. 2003:642 [ref. 27061], Bleher et al. 2007:162 [ref. 29227], Ready et al. 2006:200 [ref. 29520], Bleher 2011:1287 [ref. 31397], DoNascimiento et al. 2017:100 [ref. 35633]). Current status: Valid as Symphysodon aequifasciatus Pellegrin 1904. Cichlidae: Cichlinae. Distribution: Amazon River basin: Brazil and Colombia. Habitat: freshwater.
