Max length : 8.9 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 54041)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 7; Anal soft rays: 12 - 13; Vertebrae: 40 - 41. Distinguished from its congeners, except Batasio batasio, in possessing a color pattern on the body consisting solely of horizontal stripes (vs. with vertical bars and spots, or a uniform dark brown color). Differs from B. batasio in having a shorter dorsal spine (14.0-16.1% SL vs. 16.7-18.5), longer adipose-fin base (28.3-31.8 % SL vs. 24.8-26.5), and a deeper body (19.5-21.2% SL vs. 17.0-17.4) and caudal peduncle (9.3-9.7% SL vs. 8.2-8.8) (Ref. 54041).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in lowland river with turbid water, mainly on sand substrate in lotic areas and sand/mud substrate with some submerged and emergent vegetation in lentic backwaters (Ref. 54041).

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=0.00794 (0.00361 - 0.01750), b=2.95 (2.77 - 3.13), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.3 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 vulnerability (22 of 100) .
