Peckoltia bachi
Bola Pleco (L146/L232)
紫色幽灵琵琶
An inconspicuously coloured small catfish which, with its compact body shape, reminds one mostly of 'classic' Peckoltia, from which it is nevertheless differs by its almost straight head profile. Further differences from 'classic' Peckoltia are a very large gap between the eyes, which is around one fifth of the body length (in Peckoltia less than one sixth) and a very domed and furrowed head area. Because of these differences it was briefly classified in a new genus (Sophinancistrus), however now resides back in Peckoltia.
