Crenicara punctulatum: imported from Lake Tapana Peru in stock
Crenicara cf. punctulatum from Lake Tapana Peru
It was only quite recently that we were able to import Crenicara puntulatum from Peru. We reported on that importation at Aquarium Glaser. Now we received fully grown specimens from Brazil with information on the collection site: Lake Tapana. These fish differ in some points from all so far described populations of Crenicara punctulatum.
The males have strongly enlarged fins and in both sexes an orange spot above the operculum can be extant. The pattern of the operculum reminds one rather in the closely related species Crenicara latruncularium, but the fin formula is identical with C. punctulatum. This new population (or species) of Crenicara is in any case very attractive.
