A new species of the genus Rineloricaria is described from the upper Vaupés River, upper Amazon basin, in Colombia. The new species is distinguished from congeners by its coloration pattern composed of a dark dorsolateral stripe on both sides of the body; and dorsal, pectoral, pelvic, and anal fins each with a dark spot occupying almost the entire fin; an abdomen covered by irregular dark brown spots; few teeth on the premaxilla; and the number of lateral plate series. An identification key for species of Rineloricaria from the Colombian Amazon basin is presented.
