Parotocinclus bidentatus

The Parotocinclus bidentatus lives in the demersal, freshwater environment.

The first of the new catfishes, Parotocinclus bidentatus, is known from a number of localities around Rio de Janeiro, including the Rio Pirapetinga, a left bank tributary of the Rio Paraiba do Sul. More

Parotocinclus bidentatus can be distinguished from all other Hypoptopomatinae except Niobichthys, Epactionotus, Eurycheilichthys, Parotocinclus collinsae, and P. muriaensis by the presence of unicuspid teeth behind the series of bicuspid teeth of the dentary and premaxillary. More
