Hypancistrus spec. Xingu

6. July 2007

From lower parts of the Rio Xingu we received very high-contrasted Hypancistrus spec. Xingu. In their appearance they arrange between L 333 and fishes of the L 66 group. But they are clearly more flattened and stretched than L 333. From L 66 and their relatives (e.g. L 236) they can be distinguished by the form of the caudal fin, which is rather flag like and not reminding on a deep ā€œCā€ .
