Identification Pseudancistrus is the only genus of the Ancistrini (former Ancistrinae) that lacks evertible cheek plates. Because of this characteristic, it has at times been placed in the Hypostominae.

L067 was often known as being the same as L017. L067 will grow spines horizontally outwards right around the snout rim but especially at the sides. L067 has at least a small amount of yellow in the dorsal fins leading spine. Both fishes have yellow in the caudal.
