Relevant Information:

Issbrücker (Issbrücker in Issbrücker et al, 2001) declared the synonymity of Rineloricaria and Hemiloricaria as no longer valid, and the latter again as an independent genus. The differences between the two genera are based on the positions of the males bristles and the top caudal filament on adult Hemiloricaria which is absent on Rinelolricaria. Aquarium Care: Not an easy species to keep with excessive demands on good water quality. The water should be as soft and acidic as possible. Diet: Omnivore. Vegetable food such as cucumber and other various foods such as tablet, flake and frozen. Remarks: Belongs in the same group as H. teffeana, H. formosa and H. melini. This group possesses a black caudal fin when sub-adult. Barcelos is a municipality located in the Brazilian state of Amazonas.
