Relevant Information:

These particular specimens were caught in the Paraná River, two miles from Paraná City and in a small lagoon called "La Ensenada" by the Image contributor in 2003. 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 one filament on the top lobe of the caudal  fin and is light brown in colouration. It also has irregular blotches on the head and down the length of its body and a more blunted  head than "Paraná 1" and it  also possess more rounded dorsal  and pectoral fins than the latter. This could probably turn out to be a member of the Hemiloricaria genera due to the filament on the caudal fi.
