Remarks: Micropterus salmoides  was introduced into Lake of Yojoá as a sport fish ( Ostmark, 1964; Cruz, 1985). The literature suggests an introduction in the early 1950 s ( Ostmark, 1964; Cruz, 1985). However, an earlier arrival in Honduras is possible. Cruz (1985) studied the biology of M. salmoides  in the Lake of Yojoá and provided a synopsis of the introduction. Vaux (1985) collected M. salmoides  in the Laguna de Yure which is adjacent to the Lake of Yojoá. We have not collected M. salmoides  outside of the previously mentioned localities.

Departments: Choluteca, El Paraíso, Francisco Morazán, Gracias a Dios, Intibucá, Olancho, Valle and Yoro. Drainages: Atlantic slope: Lislis, Aguán, Sico-Tinto, Patuca, Warunta and Coco. Pacific slope: Lempa, Goascorán, Nacaome, Choluteca and Negro.

Amatitlania siquia Schmitter-Soto, 2007  . Siquia  cichlid, conguito del Siquia  . Native. Departments: El Paraíso, Francisco Morazán, and Gracias a Dios. Drainages: Atlantic slope: Coco. Pacific slope: Choluteca.

Remarks: The locality from the Yeguare River listed in Schmitter-Soto (2007) as an Atlantic locality is an error. The Yeguare River is a tributary of the Choluteca River which drains into the Gulf of Fonseca. Thus, in Honduras, A. siquia  is found in both the Pacific and Atlantic slopes.

Amphilophus alfari (Meek, 1907)  . Pastel Cichlid, mojarra pastel. Native. Departments: Gracias a Dios and Olancho. Drainages: Atlantic slope: Plátano, Patuca, Warunta and Coco.

These two reports represent a range extension for A. hogaboomorum  .

Amphilophus longimanus (Günther, 1867)  . Redbreast cichlid, mojarra pecho rojo. Native.

Departments: Choluteca, El Paraíso, Francisco Morazán, Gracias a Dios, Olancho, Valle and Yoro, Drainages: Atlantic slope: Aguán, Sico-Tinto, Plátano, Patuca, Warunta and Coco. Pacific slope: Nacaome, Choluteca and Negro.

Amphilophus robertsoni (Regan, 1905)  . Honduran cichlid, mojarra hondureña. Native.

Departments: Atlántida, Colón, Cortés, Gracias a Dios, Santa Bárbara and Yoro. Drainages: Atlantic slope: Motagua, Chamelecón, Ulúa, Leán, Cangrejal, Lislis, Aguán, Sico-Tinto, Plátano and Patuca. 

Remarks: Greenfield & Thomerson (1997) limited the southernmost range of this species to the department of Atlántida. However, Miller et al. (2005) listed UMMZ 188235 as A. robertsoni  collected in the upper Patuca River in eastern Honduras.

Archocentrus centrarchus (Gill, 1877)  . Flier cichlid, mojarrita rayada. Native.

Department: Choluteca. Drainages: Pacific slope: Choluteca and Negro.

Remarks: Schmitter-Soto (2007) states that A. centrarchus  is found in drainages of the Gulf of Fonseca. A. centrarchus  has been reported in Honduras only in two Gulf of Fonseca drainages, the Negro and Choluteca Rivers ( Cruz & Espinal, 1989), but there is no evidence of its occurrence in the Nacaome and Goascorán Rivers.

Archocentrus multispinosus (Günther, 1867)  . Rainbow cichlid, mojarrita arcoiris. Native. Departments: Choluteca and Gracias a Dios. Drainages: Atlantic slope: Patuca, Warunta and Coco. Pacific slope: Choluteca and Negro.

Remarks: Schmitter-Soto (2007) found the northernmost limit of this species on the Pacific slope of Central America in the Guasaule River in Nicaragua. We collected this species in the Negro River ( USM field number WAM 08- 20) and the Choluteca River ( USM 31494View Materials). In addition, Cruz and Espinal (1989) also reported A. multispinosus  in the Negro and Choluteca Rivers.

‘Cichlasoma’ trimaculatum (Günther, 1867). Threespot cichlid, mojarra prieta. Native. Department: Valle. Drainages: Pacific slope: Lempa and Goascorán.

‘Cichlasoma’ urophthalmus (Günther, 1862). Mayan cichlid, mojarra maya. Native. Departments: Atlántida and Cortés. Drainages: Atlantic slope: Motagua, Chamelecón, Ulúa, Leán and Lislis.

Remarks: Schmitter-Soto (2007) restricts the distribution of this species to the Atlantic slope drainages of Honduras and Guatemala with its easternmost boundary at the Aguán River in Honduras. We collected C. cutteri  in the Honduran Pacific slope ( USM field number WAM 08- 43; Choluteca River basin, Valle de Zamorano). This collection represents a range extension for C. cutteri  .

Hypsophrys nicaraguensis (Günther, 1864)  . Butterfly cichlid, moga amarilla. Native. Department: Gracias a Dios. Drainage: Atlantic slope: Coco.

Remarks: The northern most reported boundary of H. nicaraguensis  is a locality in the Nicaraguan side of the Coco River bordering Honduras ( Schmitter-Soto, 2007). During this project H. nicaraguensis  was colleted in the Rus Rus River on the Honduran side of the Coco River ( USM field numbers WAM 08-05 and WAM 08-08). These records represent a range expansion for the species and a new species report for Honduras.

Oreochromis mossambicus (Peters, 1852)  . Mozambique tilapia, tilapia mozambiqueña. Exotic. Departments: Intibucá, La Paz. Drainage: Pacific slope: Lempa.

Remarks: O. mossambicus  was introduced to Honduras by a group of Taiwanese scientists on a mission to bring common carp and tilapia aquaculture to Central America (D. Meyer, pers. comm.).

Remarks: Bussing (2002) states that the range of P. loisellei  extends from the Ulúa River  in the Honduran Atlantic slope through the Cricamola River basin in Panama. Vouchers FMNH 50014 from the Chamelecón River and USM 31501View Materials from the Blanco River (Motagua River drainage) represent a range expansion for the species. USM field number WAM 08- 138 from the upper reaches of the Coco River Close to San Marcos de Colón in theDepartment of Choluteca represents a new locality for Honduras.

Parachromis managuensis (Günther, 1867)  . Jaguar guapote, guapote jaguar. Native.

Departments: Comayagua, Cortés, El Paraíso, Gracias a Dios, Olancho, Santa Bárbara and Yoro. Drainages: Atlantic slope: Chamelecón, Ulúa, Sico-Tinto, Plátano, Patuca, Warunta and Coco. 

Remarks: The natural distribution of P. managuensis  includes most of the Atlantic slope of Honduras, from the Ulúa River ( Martin, 1972)  to the drainage of the Matina River in Costa Rica ( Bussing, 2002). In Honduras, P. managuensis  has been introduced in all Pacific slope drainages.
