Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 18 - 21;
Vertebrae: 32 - 35. Distinguished from other members of the genus Hyphessobrycon by having low body depth, a broad black stripe along lateral of body extending weakly through median caudal-fin rays, absence of humeral spot and orange- to reddish life coloration (Ref. 85847).
Inhabits streams with relatively rapid water current, running over rocky and sandy bottoms at elevated altitudes (971 and 1.048 m a.s.l.). Stomach contents of three specimens include filamentous algae, fragments of vascular plants, adults and two distinct larvae of Diptera (Chironomidae and Simuliidae), larvae of Trichoptera, adult of Formicidae, Aranae, and fragments of unidentified arthropods (Ref. 85847).
