Hypostomus Lacépède (1803) is the dominant genus of armored catfish (Siluriformes, Loricariidae, Hypostominae) in Brazilian rivers (Britski, 1972). This group presents a wide interspecific color and morphology variation (Oyakawa et al., 2005), which hinders the identification of some species. Likewise, the existence of various cytogenetic phenotypes, including different chromosomal numbers, karyotype formulas, and location of ribosomal genes (Rocha-Reis et al., 2020), reinforces the need for more appropriate methodologies for species identification.
