Brachyrhaphis episcopi   picture (Brepi_u0.jpg) by Moodie, G.E.E. , G.E.E. Moodie   
Brachyrhaphis episcopi

Size (cm): 2.5 TL
Locality: Panama, Quebrada Juan Grande, Soberania National Park,  
Remark: Photographed 1978; photos show the extreme sexual dimorphism of the upper jaw. The male contacts the females genital region with the tip of his upper jaw. The different jaw structure also appears to affect the diet of males and females.
