Morphology | Morphometrics
Differs from Glyptothorax platypogonides by having a fairly uniform color pattern with distinct pale mid-dorsal and midlateral stripes vs. highly mottled coloration without distinct pale stripes. Distinguished also from G. dorsalis by having dark spots randomly distributed on the head and body and absence of pale colored nuchal shield vs. darker spots on the head and body and presence of a pale colored nuchal shield (Ref. 56938).
