Do you have a country of origin?

To me it looks pretty similar to a common Ancistrus cf_cirrhosus - but I'm sure you've thought of that too.

It doesn't look very similar to the pictures we have for LDA72.

There on a friends, Dave, stock list.
It says Colombia, wild caught. I'll check with him.

It didn't look quite right and thought I would ask for him!

It seems (from searching the web) that some people mix up A. triradiatus and LDA72 - I don't know if they are considered colour sports of A. triradiatus, or simply "Oh, this is the species name of an Ancistrus, let's call it that, but it's LDA72, so let's call it that too"...

Recent Colombian lists I have been sent included Ancistrus available from Cucuta. I can not say if these fish are LDA 72. I would have to do some double checking but they are most likely A. bodenhameri or a related sp.
On a personal pet peeve note... are all of these people so uneducated as to think there is a country named Columbia? Maybe they think Vancouver (British Columbia) exports tropical fishes?

I think the confusion comes from the fact that Christoper Columbus is a Latinized version of the Spanish name... I did know the spelling, but not where it comes from... And I wouldn't immediately have thought Cristóbal Colón is the same name as Christopher Columbus...

In Uruguay I once slept in a hotel Colon - named after Columbus, obviously. Still, I was happy they did not serve breakfast :lol:

Mateo Hijo de Pedro ( :wink: )said,

Christoper Columbus is a Latinized version of the Spanish name


Actually, that is the Anglicised version of Cristobal Colon. Latinized would be Christophorus Columbus. Since he was born in Italy, his parents called him Cristoforo Colombo. When he became a Spanish citizen he changed his name to Cristobal Colon.

I think the confusion comes from the English use of the "u" in British Columbia, the Columbia River, Columbia University, etc.

The country in south America is Colombia and its capital is Sante Fe de Bogota, which is shortened by most to Bogota.

Just a harmless pet peeve of mine....

Pretty sure the confusion comes from the Germans. Colombia in German = Kolumbien, and German wholesellers and aquarists frequently mistranslate Kolumbien as Columbia in stock lists and even species descriptions.
