Peckoltia sp. LDA61

28. March 2011

We received this nice pleco from Colombia. It is one of the most undemanding plecos at all. The species reaches about 12 cm maximum length. This species has such a variable coloration that a lot of L- and LDA-numbers were given to it. The animals imported now with the additional name “Morruda” (spanish, means “blobber-lipped”) look most like LDA61, a number which was initially given to that species for specimens from the rio Tapajós in Brazil. To the best of our knowledge this species of Peckoltia is not described scientifically yet.

For our customers: the animals have code 26480-LDA 061 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.

Lexicon: Peckoltia: Named after Gustavo Peckolt, member of the Natural History Commission of Rondon.
