Depends on which species of "Rubbernose" you are talking about. There are 5 that go by that common name. However one of them Chaetostoma sp. aff. milesi is the same as the Bulldog Pleco. The rest have some sort of adjective that modifies the name "Rubbernose." They are all members of the Chaetostoma genus but just slightly different from one another and differentiating between some of them can be difficult.
