Supplementary Material

The supplementary material reports the loadings of the log-transformed metrics on the principal component axes for respectively C. sp. “Virginalis kajose” and C. chrysonotus. Loadings on PC1 are all very similar, indicating that PC1 is a proxy for size. Most variation in shape is represented by PC2. For C.Virginalis kajose”, the anal fin base length, caudal peduncle length, body depth and eye diameter are the metrics that showed the highest loadings on PC2. The metrics that loaded most with PC2 for C. chrysonotus were eye diameter, anal fin base length, lower jaw length, body depth and caudal peduncle depth.
