Parapristella Géry, 1964b  

This genus, with two recognized species, is distinguishable from Pristella   mainly in having two rows of premaxillary teeth, resembling a Hemigrammus species   with a higher number of maxillary teeth (Géry, 1977). Although both Hemigrammus   and Pristella   are herein included in the Tetragonopterinae   , Parapristella   does not share presumably apomorphic character-states with any of the genera included in this clade and it is maintained herein as incertae sedis.
