Etymology: Leptolebias: Greek, leptos = thin + Greek,lebias, -ou = a kind of fish (Ref. 45335);  itanhaensis: The specific name itanhaensis denotes the presence of this species in the Itanhaém river basin, an isolated small coastal drainage of southeastern Brazil..   More on author: Costa.

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 13-16; Anal soft rays: 16 - 19. Diagnosed from other species of the genus Leptolebias except Leptolebias aureoguttatus by having four caudal neuromasts (vs. two), and horizontal golden lines on caudal fin in males (vs. no similar color pattern). Differs from Leptolebias aureoguttatus by possessing the following characters: two dark-red stripes on dorsal and ventral submarginal portion of caudal restricted to anterior portion of fin in males (vs. along all fin extension); male caudal-fin stripes parallel to fin rays, not branching posteriorly (vs. branching posteriorly); basal portion of dorsal fin with dark-orange small spots in males (vs. dark-red to dark-brown short transverse bars); and five or six lateral mandibular neuromasts (vs. three or four). Can also be differentiated from all congeners in the number of caudal fin rays, 27-31 vs. 25-28 (Ref. 75888).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in shallow (about 10-40 cm deep), temporary channels within dense rainforest, in tea-colored and acidic (pH 3.5-4.0) water with litter at the bottom (Ref. 75888).

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=0.01175 (0.00449 - 0.03072), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±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) .
