Geophagus ID please?

I picked up this Geo the other day and have added her (I presume it's female) to my mixed Geo tank.

I'd like to get a few more if I can identify and find them.

Anyone want to guess what she might be?

Thanks,
ozmo

Looks like a female Rio Tocantins variety of Geophagus altifrons.

Thanks Hukit. I've had other people say they think she might be an Argyrostictus.

Anyhow, thanks again.

Most Argyrostictus generally have vertical barring throughout and yours doesn't, I'm not saying they're wrong since Geo's are not my speciality but I'm still leaning to altifrons. Link:

So i went into the fish room today and...

Check it out... vertical barring. Hmm. So what now? I must have another one or 10. They have become one of my fav Geos.
