    lately I’ve got some specimen ot this lovely little species imported by Glaser from Paraguay. Remembers Otocinlus and is perfect in adaption to the habitat.

    I doubt it, Matt. I can’t see the clear brown lateral stripe, the markings are different and no blue/violet eyes (?) May be they change when settled in?

    Otothyropsis piribebuy (?), Matt.
    In other words: Otocinclus paulinus, Otocinclus sp. “Negros”, LG 2, Macrotocinclus paraguay, M. negros, Parotocinlus paraguay, P. negros all the same. The species comes from Paraguay

    H. nigricauda is noted for Brazil (fishbase) or Uruguay (welsfan.de), Paraguay (Glaser) seems to be wrong.

    Mmm, I’m not 100% convinced having had a quick scan of the description Charles, but my knowledge of loricariids isn’t the best.

    I don’t think they are O. piribebuy. It doesnt seem to match the nigricauda that is in the Taxonomic review of Hisonotus Eigenmann & Eigenmann (Siluriformes: Loricariidae: Hypoptopomatinae) from the laguna dos Patos system, southern Brazil (though nigricauda is found in Paraguay). The tail pattern is closer to Hisonotus notatus but I can’t be sure (and so far that isnt recorded from Paraguay).
