Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 2; Dorsal soft rays (total): 7; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 4. Distinguished from all other species of Peckoltia except P. cavaticaby having an orange band in the dorsal fin and by having thin, wavy, black lines that tend to outline the plates and bones of the head. Differs from P. cavatica by having the dorsal saddles better developed, by having the head plates and bones completely outlined in black and with lines intense, by having black vermiculations on the pterotic-supracleithrum, by having at least one, broken band in the caudal fin, and by having the marginal orange band of the dorsal and caudal fins not as thick or as intense as in P. cavatica (Ref. 54521).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits swift riffles among very large boulders (Ref. 54521).
