最初命名為 Taeniacara candidi:
- Myers, George S. 1935. "Four new fresh-water fishes from Brazil, Venezuela and Paraguay". Proceedings of the Biological Society of Washington. pp. 7-14 (crc01068)
保育: Taeniacara candidi 尚未被國際自然保育聯盟列入IUCN受威脅物種紅皮書名單中. Due to its rather large distribution, which mostly covers areas of pristine rainforest (especially in the Rio Negro region) its survival in the natural habitat should not be a matter of concern, at least for now.
