Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

C. perijae can be distinguished from C. torbesensis by the combination of the following characters: Head and caudal peduncle less depressed, 17.93% and 11.02% respectively; odontodes of the interopercular area short, the longest not reaching beyond the base of the pectoral fin; four plates between the supraoccipital and the origin of the dorsal fin; uniform color pattern, brown or dark brown to black.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Collected from mountain rivers associated to humid tropical areas. From transparent waters, with strong to moderate current with river beds formed by rocks, small stones and sand, scarce or absent aquatic vegetation (Ref. 40935).
