galusdae, Cheirodon Eigenmann [C. H.] 1928:44, Pl. 9 (fig. 2) [Memoirs of the National Academy of Sciences v. 22 (no. 2); ref. 1245] Río Locomilla at San Xavier, Chile. Holotype: CAS 59760 [ex IU 15506]. Paratypes: (110) CAS 59761 [ex IU 15506] (27); ?FMNH 77551 (3); USNM 84319 [ex IU] (9), 221997 [ex USNM 221997] (1, c&s). Plus additional material. Type catalog: Ibarra & Stewart 1987:23 [ref. 12367], Vari & Howe 1991:14 [ref. 19022]. Named for Piedro Galusda, a man. The spelling galusdae is acceptable as early workers almost certainly Latinized the name first, and then added an "e" (Art. 31.1.1) [WNE, 12 Mar. 2012] -- suggest using galusadae. •Valid as Cheirodon galusdae [sic] Eigenmann 1928 -- (Campos 1982:141 [ref. 8500], Pequeño 1989:40 [ref. 14125], Casciotta et al. 1992:10 [ref. 21059], Ruiz & Berra 1994:14 [ref. 21384], Campos et al. 1996:69 [ref. 23440], Malabarba 1998:215 [ref. 23844], Dyer 2000:84 [ref. 26678], Malabarba in Reis et al. 2003:216 [ref. 27061] dated 1927, López et al. 2003:30 [ref. 27366] as cf. galusdae, Menni 2004:78 [ref. 28131], Mantinian et al. 2008:37 [ref. 34297] as galusdai). Current status: Valid as Cheirodon galusdae Eigenmann 1928. Characidae: Cheirodontinae. Distribution: Pacific versant basins in southern Chile; possibly Argentina. Habitat: freshwater.
