    First sorry for not clear question, but thanks for willing to help.
    I was in doubt between otocinclus affinis and vittatus, now i check google for huaorani and it seems that it is precisely this kind of oto. Thanks sailedNJ !!

    Sry, not an O. Huaorani. By chance can you get a better shot of the tail section?
    10g - Otocinclus breeding tank - The Oto Journal
    20long - Otocinclus Juvenille tank
    29g - Cherry barbs, Oto's, Long finned danios, Spotted cory's, 2 Bristlenose plecs
    55g - High Fin Pleco, Harlequin Rasboras
    Several other 10g planted tanks.

    I took a shot and missed whoops!! If you could get a better shot of the tail like James asked he'll give you a better ID than I can. If anyone would know it'd be James. Any little bit of Oto knowledge I have is attributed to him & his threads & help/advice

    mucho mucho mejor!

    Like they always say...A picture is worth a thousand words. In this case, a confirmed ID. Always makes it easier when the fins are flared.

    SnailNJ my friend, you have won the prize. Please accept my humblest apologies kind sir. You make a fine apprentice my lad.

    The correct ID is in fact O. Huaorani.

    tvsb...excellent pics...thank you.
