Freshwater; benthopelagic.   Tropical

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

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 12.0 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 37098)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 1; Dorsal soft rays (total): 4-5; Anal soft rays: 9 - 10; Vertebrae: 35 - 36. Differs from other species by having a wide elliptical cranial fontanel; short postcleithral process not reaching vertical through origin of dorsal fin; body coloration variable, usually with elliptical spots along sides of body, large specimens with faint spots; or color pattern uniformly pale brown; and caudal fin with small spots or pale brown. The only other Tatia with a variable coloration is Tatia galaxias, but this species differs from Tatia galaxias by its short postcleithral process ; its small eye, 21.4-26.3% HL and its long snout 38.8-44.3% HL. Can be further diagnosed by the following characters: nasal ossified with wide medial flanges partially sutured to lateral margin of mesethmoid and caudal-fin lobes of mature females with same length, but mature males with elongated upper lobe are other distinguishing features (Ref. 79512).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits rivers (Ref. 27188). Reaches sexual maturity above 5.04 cm SL (Ref. 79512).

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):  3.5   ±0.50 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 (20 of 100) .
