Identification The genus Panaque is identified by the teeth, which are spoon-shaped. This means that the teeth are noticeably wider at the tip than at the base. Other loricariidae have teeth that are similar width all the way from one end to the other. A second distinguishing feature is the lack of a buccal papilla, which is a “flap of skin” on the inside of the mouth.

Juveniles display distinctive rusty patches in all but their caudal fins. The caudal is almost all translucent but with some posterior black marbling. The eye colour is the same rusty red. Adults have a very dark virtually black colouration with dark green stripes. The unpaired fins are black with the dorsal fin rays being picked out in dark green. This species appears to have the largest fins in relation to body size.
