Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Vertebrae: 41 - 42. Possesses the following autapomorphies: lower jaw slightly pronounced; epiphyseal branches of supraorbital latero-sensory canals not fused to each other; preoperculomandibular and postotic latero-sensory canals separated from each other; ventral caudal plate much smaller than dorsal plate, supporting only three rays; and ventral caudal-fin lobe with only three branched rays. Shares with Nemuroglanis pauciradiatus the following eight apomorphies: five or six pairs of pleural ribs; dorsal caudal plate supports only six principal caudal-fin rays; ventral caudal plate much smaller than dorsal caudal plate, supporting only three or four rays; dorsal caudal-fin lobe with five or fewer branched rays; dorsal caudal-fin lobe very long, usually greater than 40% SL; ventral caudal-fin lobe usually with nine to 13 rays; ventral caudal-fin lobe with only three or four branched rays; and caudal fin lanceolate. Differ further from its congeners by its anal-fin base length 18.4-26.4% SL; caudal peduncle length 11.3-14.5% SL; maxillary barbel length 39.8-58.6% SL; and vertebrae 41-42 (Ref. 55662).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5312   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00794 (0.00329 - 0.01915), b=3.01 (2.80 - 3.22), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months ().
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
