Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 5; Dorsal soft rays (total): 11-13; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 14 - 16. Dorsal rays V,11-13 (usually 11-12); longest (fourth and fifth) dorsal-fin spines about equal in length and shorter than longest soft dorsal ray in adults; anal rays III,14-16 (usually 15); pectoral rays 12-13; tubed lateral-line scales 28-33 (usually 30-31); diagnostic color markings consisting of 4-5 wedge-shaped black bars or saddles without intervening small spots (Ref. 27655).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Strictly restricted to freshwater areas, penetrating well inland or approximately 300 km upstream from the sea (Ref. 27655). Occurs in deeper pools where its swims near the surface, patrolling the shoreline for insects (Ref. 27655).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5156   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01995 (0.00906 - 0.04395), b=3.01 (2.83 - 3.19), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.40 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (20 of 100) .
