Teleocichla wajapi, new species, is described from the rio Jari basin, northern Brazil. The new species differs from its congeners by possessing four anal-fin spines, 56-62 scales in E1 series, smaller orbital diameter (24.6-30.2% of head length) and barred or zigzag color pattern on flanks. New information on the morphology and distribution of T. centrarchus is provided based on recently collected material. (AU)
