Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 5.6 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 57723)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 17 - 19; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8-9; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 7 - 8. Nanochromis teugelsi is characterized by the absence of scales on nape, cheeks, and chest, but is has a fully scaled opercle (Ref. 57723). It has an elevated upper lateral line, with about half or more contiguous with the dorsal-fin base; it has 15-23 upper lateral-line scales and 4-8 lower lateral-line scales (Ref. 57723). It is also characterized by the absence of a supraneural bone (Ref. 57723).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5039   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01514 (0.00709 - 0.03231), b=2.97 (2.80 - 3.14), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.4 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 (10 of 100) .
