Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 15 - 17; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8-10; Anal soft rays: 7 - 8; Vertebrae: 26 - 29. Dentary pores 1-2; infraorbital pores 3-4; lachrymal pores 2; extrascapular pore 1. Caudal fin base with a prominent dark spot at the center, surrounded by a light ring. Differs from B. pyema in having a deeper body, depth 32.5-39.4% (versus 26.3-32.7); fewer lateral line scales, 25-26 (versus 27-28); fewer vertebrae, 26-29 (versus 28-29); and color pattern. Males are overall dark with a brown spot on each scale on sides. No dark blotch on cleithrum, opercular margin, nor on dorsolateral side of caudal peduncle (Ref. 46238).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in a small stream, Nan Kywe Chaung, up to 30 m wide but not very deep, about 1 m in the low water season; water colorless and clear, current moderate, surroundings consisted of secondary forest and pasture, the bank with grasses; with long-leafed submerged plants (Cryptocoryne) growing in clumps whose bottom consisted of sand and pebbles (Ref. 46238). Maximum length reported, 6 cm TL and 5 cm TL for female (Stefan, pers. comm. 05/05).

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=0.00447 (0.00173 - 0.01152), b=3.10 (2.88 - 3.32), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±0.2 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years (Assuming Fec<100).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
