Geographic distribution: Upper reaches of Paraíba do Sul tributaries.

Diagnosis: Characidium lauroi differs from C. vidali by the presence of small rounded dark marks below the lateral stripe, which are separated from the dorsal-lateral bars, and pigmentation bars on the caudal fin are usually absent or inconspicuous ( Melo 2001b, Buckup et al. 2014).
