This species apparently occurs in the Rio Paraná drainage and may therefore not be part of the species complex occurring in the coastal rivers of Brazil. Makes you wonder what you would find travelling down the Paraná until you reach the range of Australoheros kaaygua and the like. Quite a stretch of river not yet researched for Australoheros.
