Hemiancistrus guahiborum

Hemiancistrus guahiborum
Spotted Orange Seam Pleco (L106)
This species was only described to science in 2005, the species name being taken from the name of a local tribe. It's also known as the spotted orange seam plec, due to its patterning. It's found living alongside other Loricariid species in nature, including Peckoltia and other Hemiancistrus species. There's ongoing discussion as to whether this species and the currently undescribed L122 are one and the same, as these two were apparently both included in the scientific description mentioned above. Based on shape, the two would appear to be distinct, as L122 has a flatter profile than Hemiancistrus guahiborum.Hemiancistrus guahiborum is distinguishable from the similar L122 by the formers higher body.
