Etymology: Leptotocinclus: Derived from the from the Greek leptos, means fine, small, delicate, and Otocinclus, a genus of Hypoptopomatini, in reference to the delicate aspect of the species included.;  ctenistus: The specific epithet is from the Greek ktenistus, meaning combed, derived from ktenos, comb, in reference to the contact organ formed by a comb of odontodes on the pelvic fin of mature males. An adjective.

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 1; Dorsal soft rays (total): 7; Anal soft rays: 6; Vertebrae: 27. Leptotocinclus ctenistus can be diagnosed from its only congener L. madeirae by the presence of median series of abdominal plates, arranged in one single row (vs. median series of abdominal plates absent); and having 3-6 lateral abdominal plates (vs. 1-2, but one specimen with 3). It further differs by having larger size of preanal plate (7.0-12.0% SL vs. 1.5-6.4% SL) (Ref. 116855).
