Etymology: Oligosarcus: Greek, oligos = small + Greek arkos = anus (Ref. 45335);  jacuiensis: The species name jacuiensis is in reference to rio Jacuí in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, where most of the specimens were collected. An adjective (Ref. 85166).

Environment / Climate / Range Ecology

Freshwater; benthopelagic.   Tropical

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 18.8 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 85166); 20.5 cm SL (female)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 11. Can be diagnosed from all its known congeners, except Oligosarcus jenynsii, Oligosarcus perdido, Oligosarcus acutirostris, Oligosarcus solitarius and Oligosarcus hepsetus, by the number of perforated lateral line scales (55-65). Shares with the first two species the absence of a premaxillary foramen, present in the last three species and differs from Oligosarcus jenynsii by having a smaller orbital diameter and the tip of the pectoral fin failing to reach the pelvic-fin origin, and from Oligosarcus perdido by the presence of more horizontal scale rows around the caudal peduncle.
