The red phantom tetra bears a similar colouration and shape to several species in the genus Hyphessobrycon such as serpae tetra (H. eques), rosy tetra (H. rosaceus), H. bentosi, and is closely related to the black phantom tetra (H. megalopterus). Red phantom tetras are easily distinguished by their lack of white edges on their fins and the prominent black shoulder patch. They do not share the aggressive/bullying tactics of the serpae tetra.
