The fish heart is composed of six anatomical components arranged in series. Among them, the ventricle stands out for presenting considerable morphological variations between the species related to the external anatomy, organization of the myocardium and distribution of coronary vessels.

Currently, the genus Moenkhausia consists of 78 valid species, distributed in the main hydrographic South-American basins, with its greatest diversity in the Amazon basin. This genus is still in a confused state of phylogenetic and taxonomic understanding due to the large number of species and morphological diversification. Approaches focusing its subgroups can be a way out to deal with...
The characiforms represent one of the largest groups of freshwater fish in the world, with the Characidae family consisting of 12 subfamilies , 165 genera and 950 species . Until recently, the genus Moenkhausia was among the 88 genera allocatedas incertae sedis in Characidae , what indicates the confused taxonomic status and insufficient knowledge about the phylogenetic interrelationshi...
