|Scientific Name||Isorineloricaria acuarius Ray & Armbruster, 2016|
|Common Names||L093, Blåfinnet Gaffelsugemalle (Denmark) |
L195, Blue Fin Thresher Pleco
|Type Locality||Rio Portuguesa, 3 km northeast of El Barriero, Portuguesa, Venezuela, 09°03'08"N, 69°29'18"W.|
|Etymology||Greek, isos = equal + Greek, rhinos = nose + Latin, lorica, loricare = cuirass of corslet of leather.|
|Identification||Isorineloricaria can be distinguished from Aphanotoroulus by having caudal peduncle proportions that get proportionately longer with size and that become round in cross-section (vs. caudal peduncles that do not become greatly lengthened with size and that are oval in cross section) and by having spots almost as large as lateral plates on a nearly white background (vs. small dark spots (less than half plate diameter) on a light tan background). |
This species has an unusual bluish-green sheen to the lower caudal lobe.
|General Remarks||Aqualog L093 and L195 matches DATZ L093. L195 in DATZ is a picture of an adult fish. Aqualog also shows this fish as L192, but the DATZ L192 is, most likely, as species of Hypostomus.|
