Environment / Climate / Range Ecology

Freshwater; benthopelagic; potamodromous (Ref. 51243).   Tropical; 25°C - 30°C (Ref. 2060), preferred ?

Distribution Countries | FAO areas | Ecosystems | Occurrences | Point map | Introductions | Faunafri

Africa: Niger and some other coastal basins of Guinea and Sierra-Leone, the Kribi River in Cameroon (Ref. 3203).

Length at first maturity / Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?, range 5 - ? cm
Max length : 16.0 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 2915)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 14-17; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 28 - 33. SL/BD = 4.4-6.1. Dorsal much smaller than anal inserted almost midway from origin of anal (Dorsal-Anal fin base ratio 0.32-0.46). Pectorals at most as long as head with posterior end not extending beyond origin of pelvic fins. Thin caudal peduncle with height 22.6-31.5 x SL. Color similar to B. brachyistius. Snout projecting and curved downward.(Ref.4967)

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Affinities: related to Brienomyrus brachyistius, distinguished by longer anal fin in Brienomyrus longianalis and by lower peduncle height SL ratio. May be limited to the delta and the lower reaches of rivers (Ref. 3203).

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=0.00646 (0.00346 - 0.01204), b=2.66 (2.50 - 2.82), based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±0.2 se; Based on diet studies.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Fec=417-2,252).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (19 of 100) .
