Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

A small-sized, deep-bodied species, sometimes with a slight nuchal hump (Ref. 35836). A stiff lower jaw, tapering towards a narrow, hypertrophied distal tip, covered with thick skin (Ref. 35836). The protruded mouth does not form a cylindrical tube (Ref. 35836). Long dorsal spine, 19-27% of SL (Ref. 35836). Anal and ventral fins are rather long, 19-24% and 18-21% of SL respectively, with a rather short pectoral-ventral length, 22-26% of SL (Ref. 35836). The caudal peduncle is deep, 11-12% of standard length (Ref. 35836). Scales: 12-14 predorsal scales (Ref. 35836). Live specimens are rather dark greenish brown, the back being darker, with usually greenish fins (Ref. 35836). In alcohol the basic color is a dull yellowish brown, the back being darker (Ref. 35836).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Labeobarbus osseensis especially occurs near rocky substrates in water of less than 3 m deep (Ref. 35836). It feeds on adult insects and macrophytes (Ref. 35836).

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=0.01148 (0.00543 - 0.02429), b=2.98 (2.81 - 3.15), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.6   ±0.27 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (42 of 100) .
