Etymology: acicula: The specific name is from the Latim acicula which means needle, pin. This is used in reference to the narrowness of the snout compared to N. ephippia. A noun in apposition.

Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range Ecology

Freshwater; demersal.   Tropical

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 1; Dorsal soft rays (total): 7; Anal soft rays: 6. Nannoxyropsis acicula can be diagnosed from its congener N. ephippia by the absence of preopercle latero-sensory canal (vs. presence of sensory canal); and by enlarged odontodes on posterior margin of the parieto-supraoccipital, forming crest (vs. odontodes not enlarged or forming crest). It further differs from N. ephippia by having a longer head (34.8-39.4 vs. 29.4-33.5% SL), a narrower snout (width of snout measured at widest point of mouth opening (37.0-40.7 vs. 43.1-45.3% HL), a larger predorsal length (44.7-48.9 vs. 40.1-44.5% SL), a smaller dorsal interorbital distance (37.1-42.4 vs. 43.0-54.2% HL), 20-22 plates in median series of lateral plates (vs. 23), and 11-17 teeth on premaxilla (vs. 18-26) (Ref. 116855).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Collected from clear to blackwater creeks with moderate water current, bottom composed of stones, gravel and mud or clay in parts, and moderate amounts of marginal vegetation (Ref. 116855).
