General Remarks L366 and L367 were introduced in DATZ April 2004 following Schluter, Woodward and Evers' ill-fated excursion to Brazil the previous year. Misfortune followed into the DATZ article as the two l-number photographs were captioned the wrong way around. L366 has, yellowish coloured eyes. The colour reproduction is the DATZ article is also poor and so the fish, in life, is a tan brown with dark grey thin wormlines.
