Bizarre New Species of Catfish Discovered in South America

“Nonetheless, some body measurements were found, which even though show some overlap, could be considered as helpful in distinguishing the newfound species from some congeners.”

Sexual mature males of the new species show development of short dermal teeth on the sides of the head.

The species is known from 18 localities: 17 in Brazilian territory and one in Bolivian territory.
