Scoloplacidae = ( scol OPLAS idee )  

Commonly known as the "spiny dwarf catfishes". They are known as one of the smallest catfishes to be found and are not common in the hobby due to there very small size and there placement amongst leaf litter in clear and blackwater habitats, including oxbow lakes, backwater pools, and well-vegetated streams.

 

There are only six species in this genera, Scoloplax baileyi, S. baskini, S. dicra, S. distolothrix, S. dolicholophia, and S. empousa. Scoloplax is the only genus in this family.
