This folder contains field data record sheets and slides documenting fish collections made by Donald Patrzek, Cornelia Patrzek, and Paul Fischer from ponds in Guárico, Venezuela, on 8 January 1966. Tag numbers span from 3 to 13, with one sheet corresponding to each tag number. Recorded on each sheet are locality, drainage, water, vegetation, bottom, shore, depth of water, distance from shore, depth and method of capture, and other information. The remarks field may include more detailed information about capture, color notes, and information about the species collected. Name and number of specimens collected is not included on most sheets; on sheets where that information is included, it appears to have been added later. Eight slides in the folder, numbered 1-8, presumably show the habitat where the fish were collected.
