Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Diagnosis: Unique in having a color pattern, which includes dark lateral band alongside in young, and three blackish ocellated blotches along middle of side from at least 90 mm SL; adults retain portions of lateral band as black irregular stripes connecting ocellar blotches and continuing on caudal peduncle. It is similar only to C. orinocensis in possessing three lateral ocelli; different in having a horizontal band which is absent in orinocensis; there are 3 indistinct vertical bars in young and adults (vs. five or more vertical bars in C. intermedia, C. nigromaculata, and C. piquiti); lateral scales 72-80 and line is discontinuous (vs. continuous in intermedia, ocellaris, temensis, thyrorus) (Ref. 57716).
