Karyotype supporting Mugil curema Valenciennes, 1836 and Mugil gaimardianus Desmarest, 1831 (Mugilidae: Teleostei) as two valid nominal species
M. Nirchio, F. Cervigón, J. Porto, J. E. Pérez, J. A. Gómez, J. Villazaz

In this study, we present the karyotypic features of two taxa, curema and gaimardianus (genus Mugil), supposed to be synonyms by some authors. Their cytogenetic differences are conspicuous and unambiguous, providing evidence that Mugil curema and Mugil gaimardanus are two valid nominal species.

Keywords: karyotype, Mugil curema, Mugil gaimardianus, valid nominal species.
