Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Characiformes (Characins) > Ctenoluciidae (Pike-characids)
Etymology: Boulengerella: From George Albert Boulenger (1858-1937); he revised the works of Günther about Percoidei (Ref. 45335).

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 25.8 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 38209)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 10-11; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 9 - 11; Vertebrae: 48 - 49. The location of the dorsal-fin base largely posterior of the vertical through the anal fin origin distinguishes this species from all congeners except B. maculata, from which it differs in possessing a narrow, dark, horizontal stripe extending from the rear of the orbit of the caudal peduncle, the presence of distinct, dark cross-bars on the lobes of the caudal fin, and absence of dark spots about the size of the pupil on the body.
