Lucifuga undescribed species
[Navarro-Mendoza and Valdes-Casillas 1990]
Despite the suggestion that specimens were collected from Cenote Catedrales the species has never been described.
Navarro-Mendoza and Valdes-Casillas (1990) recorded specimens of what they assumed to be Lucifuga from Cenote Catedrales and say that the genus was also seen in Cenote Cristal, both in Quintana Roo, Yucatan, Mexico (Palacios-Vargas, Juberthie and Reddell 2015:24-26).
Probably typical Cenote/groundwater habitat as for other fishes in the area.
