Diagnosis: Peckoltia cavatica   can be identified from all other described Peckoltia   except P. braueri   by the presence of an orange band in the dorsal fin and by having thin, black lines that outline the plates and bones of the head. Peckoltia cavatica   can be identified from P. braueri   as above The only other species of Peckoltia   similar to P. cavatica   in coloration are P. lineola   and P. vermiculata   , which can be identified by having vermiculations on the dorsal head bones and plates (vs. coloration confined to the borders between bones and plates in P. cavatica   ).

Description: Peckoltia cavatica   was recently described by Armbruster and Werneke (2005). Morphometrics in Table 3.

Range. Collected from two localities around the Macushi village of Massara near Anai in the Rupununi River ( Fig. 8 View FIGURE 8 ).
