|Etymology||Paulasquama from the Latin paulus, meaning small, and squama, for scale armor, in reference to the small plates located in the dorsal series just below the dorsal fin. The specific epithet callis is Latin for a stony, uneven, narrow footway, in reference to the plates like cobblestones along the narrow mesethmoid with naked areas to either side.|

|Distribution||Known only from the Waruma River, a tributary of the Mazaruni River, a river that flows northeast from Mount Roraima. The Waruma is a largely clearwater river with a slight black tint. Specimens were collected in a riffle in a shallow side channel over polished cobble and gravel. Some larger rocks covered in a grasslike vegetation. The watershed is forested.
