It differs from Pelvicachromis sensu stricto in the number and arrangement of tubular infraorbitals, a straighter and sloping dorsal head profile with a low supraoccipital crest, higher abdominal vertebral counts (14–15 vs. 13–14), and in displaying a pattern of vertical bars on the body in several behavioral situations "
