The back, as usual in this habitat, is darker than the belly. However, it prefers grain and seeds wheat and maizeand it often gathers in large banks near ports, where cargo ships drop grains into the water. Exposure obtusdens this herbicide produced a decrease in all hematological parameters tested.

Megaleporinus obtusidens is an omnivore: In young individuals there are also eight broad vertical streaks, joined in the back and coming down to the middle line.

Its basic colour is a light greenish-gray, with three rounded dark spots in mid-flank, which may not be visible in some specimens.

Curimatus obtusidens Valenciennes, Leporinus silvestrii Boulenger, Leporinus aguapeiensis Amaral Campos, Leporinus obtusidens Valenciennes, Acetylcholinesterase AChE activity was verified in brain and muscle tissues.


It prefers warm waters and reproduces in spring and summer, starting at 2 years of age.

Collaborators Pictures Stamps, Coins Misc. Levels of ammonia in both tissues increase in fish at all glyphosate concentrations. In addition, fish exposed to all glyphosate concentrations showed a significant increase in hepatic glycogen and obtudidens, but a significant reduction in muscle glycogen and glucose.

Metabolic parameters in the liver and muscle lactate, glycogen, glucose, protein, and ammoniaas well as some hematological parameters, were determined. Short description Morphology Morphometrics Dorsal soft rays total: This page was last edited on 22 Marchat Cordiviola de Yuan, E.

Results indicated that AChE activity significantly decreased in the brain of fish exposed to all glyphosate concentrations tested, but in the muscle this parameter was not altered.

In this study, teleostean fish Leporinus obtusidens piava were exposed to different concentrations of Roundup, a glyphosate acid equivalent herbicide: Differs from Leporinus amblyrhynchusL. Megaleporinus obtusidens has an elongated wide body, with a comparatively small head and a blunt mouth; its teeth are reminiscent of the incisors of Lagomorphawhence the name of the genus leporinus” hare -like”, as in Leporidae.
