Size 150mm or 5.9" SL. Find near, nearer or same sized spp.
Identification Pareiorhaphis species are primarily diagnosed from remaining neoplecostomines by having the canal plate firmly articulated to the preopercle, and by a series of sexually-dimorphic features of hypertrophied odontodes of adult males, giving the fish a hispid appearance.

Pectoral fin overlapping half the length of pelvic fin; absence of a skin flap on dorsal margin of the pectoral-fin spine; nuptial males with pectoral-fin spines thick, straight and richly ornamented with short hypertrophied odontodes.
