Corymbophanes andersoni

The Corymbophanes andersoni lives in the demersal, non-migratory, freshwater environment.

Corymbophanes andersoni was originally described from a single specimen. A few more were collected in our recent survey; however, catching these swift-water-dwelling fishes proved very difficult. More

Corymbophanes andersoni is distinguished from Corymbophanes kaiei by a lack of vermiculations on the abdomen, a lack of bands on the caudal fin, anal fin I4 (vs. I5), a narrow (vs. wide) caudal peduncle, and five plates below the adpressed pectoral-fin spine (vs. 3-4). More
