Hypostomus annectens   has fourteen branched rays on caudal fin, and seven branched rays on dorsal fin. The caudal fin is furcate or markedly emarginate. The dorsal fin depressed reaches the origin of the adipose fin, in juveniles; in adults it does not reach, but is very close. The adipose fin is always present. The abdomen is almost completely covered, in adults; there are naked areas in front and in the inner side of the pelvic fins. Juveniles, have small plates on the ventral region of the head, at the level of the pectoral girdle, and sides of the abdomen, but the central region of the abdomen until behind the anus is complete naked. The species has few cheek odontodes (4–8), somewhat developed (straight, and thick compared with normal odontodes). The cheek odontodes are associated with a bony plate with reduced mobility or immobile. The color of the body and fins is brown with rounded dark or black spots. The spots on the caudal fin are smaller than in the rest of the body and fins. The abdomen has dark rounded spots. The species inhabits the Pacific slope, in NW Ecuador, exclusively in aquatic systems draining the river Santiago, Province of Esmeraldas.
