Max length : 11.7 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 79512)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 1; Dorsal soft rays (total): 4-5; Anal soft rays: 9 - 10; Vertebrae: 29 - 30. Distinguished from all congeners by having a completely striped color pattern, bearing whitish elongate longitudinal irregular stripes along lateral sides of body. Adult male with a unique arrangement of modified anal fin, with the second unbranched anal-fin ray with anterior enlarged segments and a notch formed by the reduction of the second and third branched rays. Additional features useful to separate this species from all congeners include: pectoral-fin with four branched rays; 7 ribs; vertebrae 29-30; and upper caudal-fin lobe slightly elongated in mature males, same length in females (Ref. 79512).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Collected in an igarape of rivers, hidden in submerged trunk. Feeds mainly on juvenile and adult insects.

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=0.00457 (0.00177 - 0.01179), b=3.12 (2.90 - 3.34), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.40 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (19 of 100) .
