Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 9-10; Vertebrae: 40 - 41. Can be diagnosed in having the following characters: lateral line scales 39-42 (vs. 43-54; except 34-35 in Hemibrycon orcesi); scales between lateral line and anal-fin origin 6-7 (vs. 4-5; except 7-9 in Hemibrycon colombianus); and scales between lateral line and dorsal-fin origin 6-7 (vs. 8; except 7-10 in Hemibrycon colombianus). Most specimens of Hemibrycon paez differ from those of Hemibrycon boquiae, Hemibrycon yacopiae and Hemibrycon raqueliae by the possession of 19-23 anal-fin rays (vs. 23-29); readily distinguished from its congeners by having the mesopterygoid barely touching the metapterygoid (vs. overlapping the metapterygoid, except in Hemibrycon jabonero, Hemibrycon rafaelense and Hemibrycon guppyi) (Ref. 83529).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits creeks with surface temperature 19.2-20.5°C, air temperature 18.8-22.8°C, dissolved oxygen 7.6-8.0mg/l, saturation 98-100%, clear water, width 5-6m, and substrate composed of stone, sand and decaying organic material (Ref. 83529).

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=0.00603 (0.00258 - 0.01408), b=3.16 (2.96 - 3.36), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months ().
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
