The long nose pins it down as a lineage 1 species. C. pastazensis is lineage 1 but has no black in the dorsal fin. My best guess would be a stressed out C. blochi.

Choose one of these....
Spotted version of amandajanea, ambiacus, blochi, brevirostris, crimmeni, delphax, ephippifer, a variant leopardus, c75, c87 ..... according to Ian's book anyway.....it may even turn out to be a leucomelas, but I'm more doubtful about that. ;)
