P. armatulus is the common sripped raphael[edit source]

It seems that the stiped raphael commonly kept in aquaria is actally P. armatulus. On page 11 there is a key for iding the diffrent Platydoras species. It also says: "synonymized D. dentatus with P. costatus". Although it also states that it is a "tenative" synonym (since 1855). this restates what is above, but in simpler terms.

Planet catfish has stated that P. costatus is/was "long misidentified as the widely distributed species commonly available in the hobby". --Tash 20:26, 29 January 2009 (UTC)
