First described by Kner in 1854, the Glyptoperichthys cf. gibbiceps is also known as the Marbled Sailfin Plecostomus. Growing to an impressive 12 inches in length, this pleco has an enlarged dorsal fin that when raised looks like a sailfin, extending to nearly the tail fin. The body is dark with a reticulated pattern of yellow/white markings resulting in the appearance of a stone wall structure. The fins have a touch of orange near their fringe and the pattern is more striped than reticulated. The Gibbiceps can be found as L-083 in the Loricariidae listings.
