|Scientific Name||Ancistrini sp. (LDA070)|
|Pronunciation||an SISS tree nee|
|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.|
|Size||120mm or 4.7" SL. Find near, nearer or same sized spp.|
|Identification||When viewed from above, with the head pointed toward the viewer, the wavy line behind the head looks like the letter "M" (or the letter "W" if the tail is facing the viewer).|
|Distribution||Listed as being exported from "Venezuela." Possibly an upper Orinoco fish.|
|Breeding Reports||There is no breeding report.|
