Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Perciformes (Perch-likes) > Cichlidae (Cichlids) > Cichlasomatinae
Etymology: Laetacara: Latin, laetus = happy + tupí, guaraní acará = a name of a fish (Ref. 45335);  flamannellus: Derived from the Latin flammeus, meaning flame colored, and from the Latin annellus, meaning ring, in reference to the orange flame ring around the dorsal-fin spot, one of the diagnostic character states of the new species.

Environment / Climate / Range Ecology

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 15 - 16; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8-9; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 8 - 9; Vertebrae: 24. Distinguished from all other species of Laetacara by having the following combination of characters: dark brown or black spot located on dorsal-fin base; yellow stripe on the middle portion of the dorsal fin, crossing the whole fin; orange flame ring around the dorsal-fin base spot; no red pigmentation on belly; no red or purple zone on the anal-fin base; no red zone on the caudal-fin base; cycloid scales on the opercle plate; and trunk scales above upper lateral line with few ctenii (Ref. 91058).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found mainly in in lentic water near the bank, about 1.5 m from the margin in shallow places (0.3 - 0.5 m) where herbaceous vegetation Cyperaceae prevailed. Other species encountered in the same biotope were Rivulus schuncki Costa & De Luca, 2011, juveniles of Hoplerythrinus unitaeniatus (Spix & Agassiz, 1829) and Nannostomus sp. Also collected from a lotic water creek in a shallow place (0.4 m) on the flooded margin and found sympatric with Apistogramma gossei Kullander, 1982, Crenicichla inpa Ploeg, 1991, Krobia sp., Mesonauta sp., Satanoperca jurupari (Heckel, 1840) and Fluviphylax palikur Costa & Le Bail, 1999 (Ref. 91058).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5078   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.03162 (0.01397 - 0.07157), b=3.00 (2.81 - 3.19), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±0.5 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
