soft rays: 5;
Vertebrae: 28 - 29. Distinguished from other species of Corumbataia by the following characters: absence of a raised tuft of enlarged odontodes on the supraoccipital (vs. presence); an infraorbital canal entering the infraorbital series via the sphenotic (vs.via the pterotic-supracleithrum); and caudal fin with vertical dark bars (vs. middle caudal-fin rays pigmented or one pair of hyaline areas on the dark background of the ventral and dorsal lobes) (Ref. 78746).
