Down arrow Species Information
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.
