Dorsal soft rays (total): 8-10; Anal soft rays: 14 - 17; Vertebrae: 33 - 35. i>Atlantirivulus ribeirensis can be diagnosed from all its congeners by the following combination of characters: lateral line divided into two sections (vs. single); lateral line with one neuromast by scale (vs. lateral line often interrupted by scales without neuromasts); caudal fin oval in both sexes (vs. sub-truncate at least in males); caudal fin in males with narrow dark grey stripe along whole fin margin (vs. never a similar color pattern); venter yellow; caudal-fin spot always conspicuous in females (vs. spot pale or absent in females above 2.8 cm SL) (Ref. 102354).
