Rineloricaria thrissoceps

Post by Karsten S. »

Hi,

the pictures on the species page seem to be of a different species, from species description:
Back with 4 broad blackish transverse bands, their arrangement and disposition as first at dorsal base...
The catfish shown here has five bands (with first at dorsal base) and additionally the snout shape and caudal fin pattern don't really match.
Assuming that they came from the correct location (Rio Santa Lucia) I would rather say that it should be Rineloricaria pareiacantha. However, the picture you are showing on that species page again looks different, but this might be due to size/age...

Cheers,

Karsten
