Abstract

A new species of Hyphessobrycon from a tributary of the Rio Paru do Oeste (Rio Trombetas basin), at the lower Amazon basin draining the Guiana Shield region in Pará State, Brazil, is described. The new species presents a unique combination of an irregularly-shaped humeral blotch, a broad diffuse midlateral stripe, and a roughly triangular caudal peduncle blotch. The new species is herein included in the Hyphessobrycon agulha species-group, and comparisons with species belonging to this group and to a similar-looking non-congener, Hemigrammus bellottii, are presented.
