Size 85mm or 3.3" SL. Find near, nearer or same sized spp.
Identification Bright orange fin colouration and spotted body means that this species can only really be confused with C. sterbai, although the latter has a rounded snout where C. haraldschultzi is a long nosed species. Spots on the head can be used to differentiate them: C. haraldschultzi has dark spots on a light background, whilst C. sterbai have light spots on a dark background.

Another species with orange fins is C. gossei, but this fish has no spots on the body at all, with spots only on the caudal fin.
