The suckermouth armored catfish genus Panaque contains seven valid species, including the Royal Pleco, Panaque nigrolineatus, which has long been popular as an ornamental aquarium fish and was originally described from the Apure River basin in Venezuela. We examine a phenotypically distinct population of P. nigrolineatus from the Guaviare River in southern Colombia at the southwesternmost corner of the Orinoco River basin. In contrast to typically boldly striped populations from closer to the… Expand

TLDR
A detailed survey of this group of armoured catfish with a special focus on pairing of commercial codes with scientific names is presented, finding that formal descriptions of unidentified taxa are required for feasible future monitoring and appropriate management measures of wild populations.
