Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Vertebrae: 43. Closely related to Leptobotia guilinensis and Leptobotia posterodorsalis by the following shared characters: lacking button-like papillae on chin region; small eye; short mouth barbels; and origin of dorsal fin posterior to ventral fin. Can be diagnosed from Leptobotia guilinensis by lacking vertical bands (vs. 15-18 vertical bands), having more vertebrae 4 + 39 (vs. 4 + 35-36), and end of pelvic fin not reaching anus (vs . reaching anus). Differs from Leptobotia posterodorsalis in having numerous white spots on body side (vs. no spot), more gill rakers 13-15 (vs . 3-4) on the outer side of first gill arch, body depth 4.9-6.9 % in SL (vs. 6.8-7.3), deep forked caudal, and more stripes 3-4 (vs. 1) on both lobes of caudal fin (Ref. 83654).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5001   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00617 (0.00271 - 0.01402), b=3.03 (2.83 - 3.23), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±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 (23 of 100) .
