Regular Altum Scalare don't have the dotted yellow pattern and they don't show as much of the blue on their gills. Rio Nanay scalare are hard to find in fish stores. If you try to purchase them you are more likely to get the regular Peruvian scalare, as they both originate from Peru and most dealers even don't know there is a difference.

The Santa Isabel scalare from the upper Rio Negro region have red dots but not quite as pronounced as the yellow pattern on the Rio Nanay scalare. Those two are some of my favorite angelfish, together with the Philippines bred Blue Silver Angelfish. When I kept a discus tank I was lucky enough to have some of the Santa Isabel and Blue Silvers but the Rio Nanay eluded me.
