Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Characiformes (Characins) > Characidae (Characins) > Stevardiinae
Etymology: Bryconamericus: Greek, bryko = to bite + America, latinized (Ref. 45335);  cinarucoense: Named for the Cinaruco River of southern Apure State, where the type series was collected.

Environment / Climate / Range Ecology

Freshwater; benthopelagic.   Tropical

Distribution Countries | FAO areas | Ecosystems | Occurrences | Point map | Introductions | Faunafri

South America: Cinaruco River of the Orinoco River basin in Venezuela and Essequibo River basin in Guyana; probably extends to similar rivers throughout the Orinoco Basin in Venezuela and Colombia.

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 3.7 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 77139)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Vertebrae: 35. Distinguished from all other species of the genus by having upper jaw extending beyond lower, maxilla short with one or two teeth, cartilaginous rhinosphenoid extending to anterior part of prevomer, pelvic bone with cartilage along anterior edge, and lateral line pores in a straight line. Can be separated from the most similar Venezuelan species Bryconamericus subtilisform by possessing fewer pored lateral line scales 35-37 (vs. 38-39), more scales below lateral line to origin of pelvic fin 4-5 (vs. 2-3), more branched anal-fin rays 20-21 (vs. 17-18), and pelvic-fin rays usually ii,6 (vs. I,7).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found along shore over sandy substrates in mainstreams of rivers, as well as tributaries (Ref. 77139).
