Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 11; Anal soft rays: 6 - 8. Distinguished from all other species of Balitora except B. brucei by its thin caudal peduncle (3-4 times longer than deep, vs. 1.9-2.8; length 16-21% SL, vs. 13-16% and 72-106% lateral HL, vs. 65-82); it differs from B. brucei by a larger eye (3.0-4.0% SL, vs. 2.3-3.3), thinner head (73-85% HL, versus 86-105) and shorter interorbital width (37-42% HL, versus 40-44) (Ref. 37826).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

In fast-flowing mountain creeks on rocky bottom; feeds on algae (Ref. 13371).
