Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 30.9 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 38441)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 1; Dorsal soft rays (total): 7; Anal soft rays: 12 - 14; Vertebrae: 43 - 44. Can be differentiated from its congeners by a unique combination of the following characters: adipose fin short (length of adipose-fin base 11.3-12.7% SL; 1.72-2.20 times maximum adipose height) with a steep anterior margin (length of adipose-fin base and a distinct black spot on the posterior half); head width 20.6-23.4% SL; dorsal to adipose distance 12.7-16.2% SL; and absence of filamentous extensions on the first three dorsal-fin rays in adults.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Feeds on exogenous insects, aquatic insect larvae, shrimps and other crustaceans, as well as fishes. In Cambodian Mekong, it moves into flooded forest to spawn and the young are first observed in August, with the adults returning to rivers in November and December.

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=0.01072 (0.00413 - 0.02777), b=2.97 (2.74 - 3.20), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.5   ±0.6 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate to high vulnerability (45 of 100) .
