Etymology The ancistrini is a tribe of the subfamily hypostominae. At one time it was a subfamily, ancistrinae, but currently sits a little lower in the scheme of things. It's used here mostly for l-numbers that can't be placed into a currently valid genus. They may, for example, exhibit traits that places it halfway between two established genera or have features common to two genera that were previously thought to be unique.
