The Rio Pitangueira and the Ribeirão Santa Terezinha are right margin affluents of the Rio do Peixe, upper Rio Paraná basin, São Paulo state, Brazil. Fourteen non-temporally standardized samplings were made at four sampling sites along the Rio Pitangueira and at one sampling site on Ribeirão Santa Terezinha using cast nets, trawl net, hand net, and fishing rod and hook. Thirty fish species were collected, belonging to five orders, 13 families, and 25 genera. Of these, one is probably new to science and one is a rare species.
