April 2007: We received a particularly beautiful easter surprise this week from Colombia. The representative of the genus Leporacanthicus illustrated here is probably the first and only specimen on the market. It reminds of the in the Orinoco occurring L 240 and L 241, as well as of Leporacanthicus cf. “Venezuela”. But its white spots are larger and the portion of white color is higher. Whether it is a color mutant of the well-known Leporacanthicus species or a new „species “, cannot be judged on the basis of a single specimen. Its expressed attractiveness stands however except question.
