|General Remarks||In the original description of this species, Fowler (1914) wrote that the fish were from ''...the Rupununi River, in the highlands of British Guiana. ...approximately secured in North Latitude 2° to 3°, and West Longitude 50° 20'.'' Although the latitude data is imprecise, the longitude data must also be inaccurate, because the Rio Rupununi is located at approximately 59°W Longitude, not 50°W Longitude as Fowler reported. So as not to unilaterally revise Fowler’s original record, the type locality data is being preserved, and displayed as ''2.5°N, 50°20'W'', averaging the two latitude values reported by Fowler and not correcting the longitude value.|
