Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Atheriniformes (Silversides) > Atherinidae (Silversides) > Craterocephalinae
Etymology: Craterocephalus: Greek, krater, -eros = bowl, mixing vessel + Greek, kephale = head (Ref. 45335);  gloveri: Named after Mr. C.J.M. Glover, Curator of Fishes of the South Australian Museum, Adelaide.

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 5.2 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 44894)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Distinguished from other hardyheads by a combination of the following characters (expressed in mean): greatest body depth (mean 4.9), least body depth (mean 10.3) both in SL; eye 3.0 in head; midlateral scale count (mean 31.4). Osteologically diagnosed by the combination of the following: dentition, shape of urohyal, medial wing of pelvic bone and premaxilla. Differs further in lacking ventral processes on fifth ceratobranchial for attachment of pharyngoclavicularis internus muscle (Ref. 26685).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits warm water (>20°C) of spring-fed pools. Upper temperature tolerance is probably not as high as C. dalhousiensis. Omnivorous. Only co-occurs with C. dalhousiensis in one spring (Ref. 44894).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00389 (0.00180 - 0.00842), b=3.12 (2.94 - 3.30), based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (21 of 100) .
