Funny enough: some of the most popular species of a group in the trade are often totally unknown to science! This is for example the case in P. “hystrix” from the Rio Negro basin in Brazil. This species stays comparatively small – around 30 cm disc width – and is thus quite popular in the hobby. Nevertheless it represents a scientifically undescribed species of Potamotrygon. The “real” P. hystrix originates from Argentina and is not kept in aquaria at all.
