.....thats a good question....
Heres some info i got from http://www.angelfire.com/biz/piranha038/hydrolycus.html

Hydrolycus wallacei, a new species, is found in the Rio Negro and upper portions of the Rio Orinoco basin differs from its congeners by its dark body coloration, the lack of scales covering the anal-fin rays and by the relatively less developed dentary canine.
