Cochliodon spec. var. marbled L 360a

6. July 2007

From the drainage basin of the Tapajos arrived a new, until now not imported loricariid catfish at our facility. Body form and yellow fin seams remind strongly of L 360, the body and parts of the fins however exhibit a veining atypical for L 360. In their maintenance requirements they might probably not differ from the recently here presented L 360. Whether it is a variant of L 360 or possibly a deviating species must at the present level of knowledge remain open.
