The ancistrini is a tribe
of the subfamily hypostominae. At the moment (2018),
can not be placed in any of the described genera due
to the overlaps of traits to different genera. Mature
males have odontodes that are round very short and
look like a bubble structure. The adipose fin is very
keel like. Similar looking to Ancistrinisp.(L461).
When captured they had a green body colour but quickly
lost this and changed to the colours seen in the images.
