A new species ofEigenmanniais described from the Rio Parana (the Grande, Paranapanema and Tiete basins). This new species is distinguished from all congeners by colouration pattern, position of the mouth, relative depth of posterodorsal expansion on infraorbitals 1 + 2, number of teeth, osteological features, number of rows of scales above lateral line (LL) and morphometric data. Comments on the widened cephalic lateral-line canals of Sternopygidae and a dichotomous key to the species ofEigenmanniafrom the Rio Parana Basin are provided. (AU)
