Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 1; Dorsal soft rays (total): 6; Vertebrae: 38 - 40. A species belonging to the genus Leptodoras by having modified oral hood and first gill arch with enlarged accessory lamellae extending well onto medial face of gill filaments. Differs from other species of Leptodoras by having the following three unique characters: gas bladder moderately sized (not reduced) and with simple walls (diverticula absent), and paired bony capsules on anteriormost vertebrae reduced to paired cup-like laminar ossifications separated by a triangular septum (Ref. 79526).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Caught at night on a large sandy shoal where the main channel of the river is wide and shallow (less than 2 m in depth) ) and with sluggish current. This species was also collected at night along a sandy beach with moderate current (Ref. 79526).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5002   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00813 (0.00358 - 0.01848), b=3.06 (2.86 - 3.26), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.8   ±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 (15 of 100) .
