Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Barbel with three branches arising together from stem; barbel stem pigmented only up to origin of branches; distal stem pigmented only in axis and small internal spots; terminal bulb roughly spheroidal with short streaks of pigment on the dorsal surface roughly outlining numerous unpigmented ovoids visible internally; ovoids not protruding above bulb surface; a single pair of laterally based terminal filaments on the dorsal tip of bulb and two or three medial filaments ventral to them; the dorsal pair longer, usually thicker, and with more side filaments than the medial filaments.

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 11.3 - 12.1, mean 11.8 (based on 9 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00389 (0.00180 - 0.00842), b=3.12 (2.94 - 3.30), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  4.3   ±0.8 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 to moderate vulnerability (26 of 100) .
