is not Y banded, at least not like Geophagus dicrozoster
. The anterior three bars (of 6 total) are medially bisected, and appear as paired bars. I would think this is only apparent in adult fish, not juveniles, inwhich they likely look solid. G. dicrozoster
has 7 bars.
The original description can be read here (page 14-22)http://txspace.tamu.edu/bitstream/handl ... sequence=1
The bars are discussed on page 15 under diagnosis, and there is a nice drawning on page 13 that shows the bisected transversal bars (abalios
is figure b.).G. dicrozoster
is also in the same document, page 24-31 and is also drawn on page 13 and is figure a. (only the mid-lateral band forms the "Y" as it transects the abdominal spot.G. winemilleri
is page 32-37 and is figure c. on page 13.
Hope that helps,
