I bought this one the other day, sold as L. llanero. Any takers on a different species?

Catchment location may help with identification, nice fish though
I bought a self-help tape the other day.
It was called "How to handle disappointment."
When I opened the box, it was empty. :YMTONGUE:

Probably a good ID, the other one to check is Lamontichthys stibaros.

This is my first ever Lamontichthys, don't know how similar they are to each others. I did even have a look at the L. sp. Columbia. Seems like that the L. stibaros has a taller dorsal, or pointier if you will. Dunno 🤔

No. But the range extends into parts of Colombia.
