Ugly or cute?  A new tetra species

Moenkhausia lineomaculata

The new tetra was discovered at the upper rio Juruena, upper rio Tapajós basin, in west-central Brazil, South America.  It’s a rather nondescript species, but I can help but think a school of tiny M.lineomaculata might look pretty cool.

Moenkhausia lineomaculata is formally described in Zootaxa.
