Type specimens were collected at the tributaries of río Tapiche which are about 2-3 m wide with crystalline water, 0.3-0.5 m deep, medium water current, sandy substrate, and with moderate amount of riparian vegetation. This species has a typical aquasperm with a spherical to slightly ovoid nucleus , suggesting that the species is non-inseminating. It was not possible to verify the presence of spermatozoa in the ovaries due to the lack of mature females. Mature males possess bony hooks on rays of all fins, except the caudal fin; the presence of which may represent a secondary sexual character (Ref. 75799).
