" Apistogramma pantalone sp.n. is described based on a total of 6 specimens from a little tributary of the Rio Nanay near the village of Alvarenga (formerly Puerto Alianza), District Santa Maria, Province Maynas (formerly Iquitos), Departamento Loreto, Peru (near 74°25´40´´W / 03°31´10´´S). Apistogramma pantalone sp. n. is separated from all other Apistogramma species by the combination of (in both sexes) lyre shaped caudal-fin, low dorsal fin as well as dark spot on the base of the soft rays, big spot on the caudal peduncle connected with black bar stretching far onto the caudal fin, and a distinct, enlarged, lateral spot. Apistogramma pantalone sp. n., is a representative of the Apistogramma-nijsseni-complex, and was found syntopic with Apistogramma martini in small brooks with sandy bottom "
