Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The driftwood catfishes are catfishes of the family Auchenipteridae. The two genera of the family Ageneiosidae have been placed here, resulting in a grouping of about 60 species in about 19 genera. These fish are found in rivers from Panama to Argentina. They are commonly found in river flood plains. ll but one species have three pairs of barbels, with the nasal barbels absent. Most species have a very small adipose fin. While Ageneiosus inermis is known to reach 59 centimetres (23 in) in length, most are small, with some species not known at any longer than 3 centimetres (1.2 in). The eggs are fertilised internally.show more
