Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 34-37; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 23 - 24; Vertebrae: 44 - 45. Diagnosed from all congeners by its unique color pattern consisting of numerous (10-20) large black spots on the cheeks (roughly pupil size), golden-orange lips, a red posterior rim of the opercular flap, 5-7 narrow alternating white and dark brown to black semicircular bands on the pectoral fin, three blotches on anterior of dorsal fin, and ref and bluish-grey scales with numerous black spots on body (Ref. 75135).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in a small stream with shaded forested banks flowing down a steep hill and with clear, fast running water (Ref. 75135).

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=0.00871 (0.00381 - 0.01989), b=2.99 (2.81 - 3.17), based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.8   ±0.7 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 to moderate vulnerability (25 of 100) .
