Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 11; Anal soft rays: 8; Vertebrae: 30. Differs from all congeners by having a wide, very conspicuous and contrasted black bars on the body (width of bar 5 equal to 1½ to 2 lateral row scales). Additional distinguishing characters of this species include bar 1 on snout conspicuous, simple dorsal-fin rays black throughout its length, black pigmentation sometimes reaching the interradial membrane before first branched ray, posterior tip of dorsal fin with a distinct black mark which appears as part of 6, pectoral fin with black upper margin; simple anal-fin rays black on their entire length in adults; all fins dusky with scattered chromatophores on all rays; posterior edge of last simple dorsal-fin ray with 17-21 serrae; presence of a small and distinct black mark immediately anterior to anus, visible in lateral view; mouth terminal with lower jaw wide and anteriorly rounded (Ref. 78741).

This is the only member of the genus Eirmotus which occurs in the black waters of peat swamp forest. Encountered only in deep inside the forested area in a less disturbed portion (Ref. 78741).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5625   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00933 (0.00435 - 0.02001), b=3.02 (2.85 - 3.19), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.9   ±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 (10 of 100) .
