TOBON-LOPEZ, Alexander  and  RUBIO, Efraín A. Report of Schedophilus haedrichi Chirichigno, 1973 (Osteichthyes: Centrolophidae) and its extended geographic distribution range in the Colombian Pacific Ocean. Lat. Am. J. Aquat. Res. [online]. 2008, vol.36, n.1, pp.105-108. ISSN 0718-560X.

A new record of Schedophilus haedrichi is reported. The individual was caught on a hand line in the North Colombian Pacific Ocean and constitutes the northernmost record of this species in the region. The specimen was compared morphologically and meristically with the only two specimens registered for Colombia (in the reference collection of Universidad del Valle, Colombia) and with the holotype specimen (Instituto del Mar del Perú Cat. N° 1221). Possible causes of its appearance at this northern latitude are discussed and the catalogue data and geographical origin of the other two specimens in the collection are presented.

Keywords : distribution range; Schedophilus haedrichi; fishing; North Colombian Pacific.
