S. medinai has a snout similar to most Pygocentrus. S. sanchezi has a snout pointy and the body more compressed than S. medinai. Externally (in terms of color and eye) they are close appearing. My impression of the photo you have is the fish is likely S. sanchezi. Scutes appear large on the belly, S. medinai does not have this feature.
