Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

A relatively small species (largest known specimen 56.7 mm SL) of the genus Bryconamericus Eigenmann, 1907 (type-species: B. exodon Eigenmann, 1907). The new species is characterized by the following features: (1) body depth relatively low (3.49 – 4.16), (2) anal-fin with 19 – 21 branched rays, (3) 17 – 21 setiform gill-rakers, (4) 38 – 41 scales in a longitudinal row, (5) 4½ – 5/1/3 transversal scales, (6) 37 – 40 vertebrae (total), (7) two to three tri- to quincuspid maxillary teeth, and (8) premaxilla in the outer row with four to five (mostly five) tri- to quincuspid teeth which are implanted in a irregularly row (Ref. 84136).

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=0.01413 (0.00578 - 0.03452), b=2.89 (2.67 - 3.11), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.7   ±0.3 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) .
