According to Géry (1977) this genus is a Hemigrammus - like tetra, with differences in the infraorbitals and the dentition. That author mentioned that the inner premaxillary tooth row of Bryconella has only two or three teeth, which are much close to the anterior row, and that in some individuals both rows merge in an irregular row of teeth. Among the species herein examined, a comparable situation was observed only in Inpaichthys kerri (Aphyocharacinae) , but this feature could be a parallelism.
