Heptapteridae is a family of catfish that originate from Mexico to South America.[2] Heptapteridae is derived from Greek, hepta meaning seven and pteron meaning fin.[3]

The diversity of this family is poorly known and there are many species yet to be described.[2] So far some 190 species have been described. This family is equivalent to the previously recognized Rhamdiinae, a subfamily of the family Pimelodidae.[2] However, molecular evidence shows that this family is a part of the superfamily Pimelodoidea along with Pimelodidae, Pseudopimelodidae, and Conorhynchos.[4]

The skin of these fish is usually naked (scaleless). They exhibit three pairs of barbels. They have a large adipose fin, and their caudal fin is deeply forked. However, there are no external characteristics that are unique to this family that allow it to be differentiated from Pimelodidae.[2]

Heptapteridae includes a few troglobitic species in the genera Pimelodella, Rhamdia, and Taunayia, as well as in an undescribed genus.[5]
