Abstract: A new species of Cyphocharax is described from the rio Mentaí, a tributary of rio Arapiuns, lower rio Tapajós basin, Pará state, Brazil. The new species can be distinguished from its congeners by the combination of a rounded dark blotch at the caudal peduncle and a pattern of horizontal stripes formed by series of conspicuous dark spots situated over the center of the scales on the lateral and dorsolateral surfaces of the body. The new Cyphocharax is compared with similar congeners as C. helleri, C. multilineatus, and C. pantostictos. Comments on the distribution of C. multilineatus are provided
