Relevant Information:

These particular specimens were caught in the port of Diamante City on the Paraná river and in a lagoon near Santa Fe City, Argentina in 2001 by the Image contributor. There are close on 10, still to be identified species of Rineloricaria in the Paraná river basin and we have labeled them as they are collected as, "Paraná 1" & 11 etc. This species has two filaments on the caudal fin and is medium brown in colouration. This in fact may turn out to be Hemiloricaria parva.
