Description: Panaqolus claustellifer has dark and light bars on its body and fins. They are very similar to L-169 (LDA001) catfish, the only difference being Panaqolus claustellifer has blood red stripes rather than beige to orange ones. This catfish is among the more rare species of the genus in the hobby, and is currently not allowed for export from Brazil.

Mature males develop noticeable odontodes along their backs, and on the pectoral fins. Males have small pointed genital papillae, whereas mature females will have large, rounded papillae. Additionally, gravid females are more plumper at the belly area, which can be more obvious when viewed from above.

Breeding is unreported in aquarium.
