This species is widespread and common in the Rio Xingu. Exports are collected near Altamira, from the area called Volta Grande do rio Xingu, an area immediately above Belo Monte falls, and from rio Iriri, the larger tributary of rio Xingu. L177 is from further upstream near the where the Rio Iriri joins the Xingu. L081 is reported in DATZ to represent three very similar small spotted gold nugget plecos. It was said to be hard to keep alive for any length of time; the others are considerably more hardy - however as more is known this appears more to be a result of transit times. These fish all represent the range of population, as more and more areas are collected, there seems to be a little pattern to the matching of color form to geographic location.
