Little is known about this species except that it was taken from the rapids along with Metaloricaria paucidens (Ref. 35381). Its morphology is intermediate to that of Cteniloricaria maculata and Harttia surinamensis. The appearance of its abdominal plaque is retarded and its caudal fin's shape is similar to that of the other two species. As far as the body shape is concerned, it appears to be closer to H. surinamensis than to C. maculata, thus justifying its move to genus Harttia (Ref. 35381).
