Brachyrhamdia meesi was originally described from ``Belem, Brazil{''}, based on material from aquarium-fish trade. Since its description, no voucher specimen of B. meesi with reliable locality has been registered in a scientific collection so far. Furthermore, this species has never been encountered in Belem and surrounding areas in Lower Amazon, an ichthyologically well sampled region, which led us to believe its type locality is erroneous. Based on recent fieldwork in Rio Ampyiacu tributaries, Peru, and a thorough review of fish collections, we report for the first time the distribution area of B. meesi as Upper Amazon of Brazil and Peru and the first case of sympatry between Brachyrhamdia species.
