Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 4; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 5. Distinguishable from other species of the genus by the combination of the following characters: color pattern consisting of a blackish longitudinal stripe along side of body; more lateral line scales (34-35) and predorsal scales (14); median lobe of lower lip with a truncate posterior margin, not extending to a line connecting inner corners of mouth; eye diameter smaller (13.1-13.8% of HL, vs. 14.6-31.2%) and visible in ventral view; interorbital width wider (43.8-45.7% of HL, vs. 27.8-40.0%); isthmus naked, scales embedded in skin; gill rakers 19-22 (Ref 13848).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in streams with clear water and usually with slow current.

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 (0.00301 - 0.01323), b=3.09 (2.91 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-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 (13 of 100) .
