provided by wikipedia EN

Neoplecostomus is a genus of fish in the family Loricariidae native to South America.[1] Neoplecostomus can be distinguished from all other loricariids by a modified shield of small plates on the abdomen with posteriorly directed odontodes; the shield appears to act as a holdfast. The color pattern is generally mottled brown with the abdomen white. The head is long, rounded, and shovel-shaped. The fin spines are weak.[2] They range from about 8 to 11 cm (3.1–4.3 in) SL.[1] The species of Neoplecostomus live in fast-flowing water.[2]
