1852 Jardine Hypostoma squalinum

This stunning hand-colored plate of Hypostoma squalinum captures the beautiful side of the fish; its scientific name is dated, but the fish belongs to the Loricariidae family. This family of catfish are know by most as amoured catfishes, or even more popularly, "suckerfish". This plate comes from Sir William's Jardine's collection The Naturalist's Library.
