Phylogenetic hypotheses among characids. (a) morphological hypothesis modified from Malabarba and Weitzman [19]. Proposed synapomorphies: 1 - Presence of bony hooks on fin rays; 2 - Lack of supraorbital bone; 3 - Dorsal fin with two unbranched and eight branched rays (ii,8); 4 - Four teeth present on inner row of premaxilla. (b) morphological hypothesis modified from Mirande [23].
