Ageneiosus inermis is a species of driftwood catfish of the family Auchenipteridae. It can be found throughout South America, from Colombia and Venezuela to Uruguay and northern Argentina.[2][3]

The name Ageneiosus marmoratus has been recently synonymized with A. inermis. The description was based on a strongly pigmented juvenile of A. inermis.[3]
