Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 6.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 2059)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 12; Anal soft rays: 8. With unique color pattern consisting of a yellowish background with a black stripe along dorsal mid-line and one from tip of snout to caudal fin base through eye and along lateral line; 1 (-3) small vertically elongated spots over lateral stripe; in life, the spots are surrounded by a whitish area (Ref. 39226).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits streams with moderate to strong current over sandy or pebble substrate. Feeds on may-flies. Observed to form small troops of up to 20 individuals above the substrate around large rocks. This is in contrast with most of the nemacheilines which live solitary under stones. A female measuring 4.16 cm SL with distended belly and ripe ovulae, about 0.7 mm in diameter (Ref. 39226).

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=0.00631 (0.00296 - 0.01347), b=3.04 (2.86 - 3.22), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.8   ±0.3 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 (13 of 100) .
