Comments:
Despite having a color pattern like that of S. leucosticta, this fish is an immediate mouthbrooder, like S. jurupari. Kullander in 1986 separated S. leucosticta and S. jurupari partly on the basis that the former is a delayed mouthbrooder and the latter is an immediate mouthbrooder. More work needs to be done to fully define the separations between geographic populations that share color pattern elements, or behavior.
