species of Trichomycterus?

Post by dmcat »

Hi All,
Just today I received 2 of these cats. I'd guess they are Trichomycterus but little is behind of this guess. Seller told me they are from Peru. My images are far from being good because I was not able to capture them showing full length (caudal fin is distorted because my jar has rounded corners - should get one with right corners! - so, I have a separate image of the caudal fin - hopefully when they are established I would be able to take some better pics of them). They are about 100 mm. I would greatly appreciate any ideas on genus and hopefully species.
Cheers,
DM

I'm sorry but I have no idea. No ID, but did remind me of these fellows at first but the eye position is wrong, so they can be discounted.

But these aren't even catfish.

Ha! I didn't look that closely - appeared as Trichomyterus sp. Peru. I guess that's what I get for using social media...
