Rivulus marmoratus
The mangrove killifish or mangrove rivulus, Kryptolebias marmoratus (formerly Rivulus marmoratus), is a species of fish in the Aplocheilidae family. It lives along the east coast of North, Central and South America, from Florida to Brazil. It is about 75 mm long.
The mangrove rivulus is a U.S. National Marine Fisheries Service Species of Concern. Species of Concern are those species about which the U.S. Government’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Marine Fisheries Service, has some concerns regarding status and threats, but for which insufficient information is available to indicate a need to list the species under the U.S. Endangered Species Act (ESA).

In other words, the fish is a hermaphrodite (contains both male and female reproductive organs) and fertilizes its own eggs before laying tiny embryos in water. As if this weren't…

Terapiasmanuales: "Rivulus marmoratus",pez que puede vivir fuera del agua
Investigadores del Programa Brevard County para Zonas en Peligro Medioambiental han descubierto que un pez tropical que vive en los pantanos de manglares americanos puede sobrevivir fuera del agua durante meses, tal como hicieron los animales que se adaptaron a la tierra hace millones de años. Esta pequeña especie, conocida por el nombre científico de "Rivulus marmoratus", busca refugio en estanques de agua poco profundos, en conchas de moluscos, en cáscaras de coco o incluso en viejas latas de cerveza de los pantanos de manglares tropicales de Belice, Estados Unidos y Brasil. Cuando su hábitat se seca, vive en tierra firme en troncos de árboles, dijo Scott Taylor, unos de los científicos de este programa. El rivulus de manglar, que puede alcanzar un tamaño de 7,6 centímetros, vive en grupos en troncos habitados por insectos y respira, a la espera de que pueda encontrar agua, a través de su piel en lugar de por sus branquias. Taylor detalló que el hallazgo científico surgió en un viaje a Belice. "Dimos una patada a un tronco y el pez sencillamente salió dando coletazos", declaró. En las pruebas de laboratorio, Taylor dijo que había descubierto que el pez puede sobrevivir durante más de...

Rincón de la ciencia: Rivulus marmoratus
Conocido vulgarmente como almirante de manglar, este pez habita en manglares de Florida, Latinoamérica y el Caribe; mide unos 3 cm pudiendo alcanzar siete y medio. Es capaz de vivir fuera del agua más de dos meses, por lo que los científicos lo identifican con las especies de transición del agua a la tierra hace millones de años; además esta especie se auto fecunda.

"Host Specificity of Calyptospora funduli (Apicomplexa: Calyptos" by John W. Fournie and Robin M. Overstreet
Calyptospora funduli has a broad host specificity, infecting at least 7 natural and 10 additional experimental definitive hosts, all atheriniform fishes within 5 families, but most in the genus Fundulus. Barriers, apparently innate ones, prevent any development of C. funduli in perciform fishes but allow incomplete or abnormal development of the parasite in a few unnatural atheriniform hosts. In the freshwater species Fundulus olivaceus and Fundulus notti, these abnormalities consisted of asynchronous development, degeneration of the parasite in early stages of development, and the formation of numerous macrophage aggregates. Rivulus marmoratus has the ability to eliminate infections with a granulomatous inflammatory response. Additional barriers that limit natural infections of C. funduli in other hosts include feeding behavior, environmental conditions, and geographic isolation.
