Rivulus ornatus

The Rivulus ornatus lives in the benthopelagic, non-migratory, freshwater environment.

Rivulus ornatus was captured on Padre Isla, the Amazon river near Iquitos. It is found in shallow drying lakes ("cochas") as well as in deeper lakes, where they are frequently found in the vegetation near the edges. More

from Rivulus ornatus on which the colouration of the flanks display red spots on a light background. The body size of both species (less than 40mm) and their morphology evidently don't place them in any particular group. More

Rivulus ornatus has been identified as R. obscurus (e.g. Huber 1992), whereas an undescribed species from Peru has been misidentified as R. ornatus (e.g. Fels & de Rham 1982, Huber 1992). More
