Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 11; Anal soft rays: 23 - 26; Vertebrae: 33. Diagnostic characters include the following: iii, 8 dorsal-fin rays; 4-5 pored lateral-line scales; 1-2 teeth in the outer premaxillary row; 7-8 teeth in the inner premaxillary row; caudal-peduncle length 11.4-16.4% SL; 28-29 lateral scales; absence of a humeral spot. Distinguished from Hyphessobrycon loretoensis by having 4 scales between the lateral line and the anal fin origin (vs. 3) and 2 maxillary teeth (vs. 3-4); and from H. agulha by having 11-12 branched pectoral-fin rays (vs. 9-10) (Ref. 93393).
