Cheeya is tall and Beiya is short; in allusion to its relatively larger size as compared to B. dorsiocellata; noun in apposition.

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Vertebrae: 31 - 32. Brevibora cheeya is distinguished from B. dorsiocellata by the complete lateral line (25-30 perforated scales vs. 4-9), more scales along the lateral row (29-32 vs. 25-27), larger size (up to 39.0 mm SL vs. 23.0 mm SL); and larger head and prepectoral length (head length 28.5-30.0% SL, vs. 24.4-27.9; prepectoral length 29.6-32.9% SL, vs. 25.8-28.8). Body laterally compressed, rather elongated. Head short. Snout pointed. Mouth terminal, reaching vertical of anterior orbit. Dorsal-fi n origin at highest point of body outline. Predorsal contour almost straight, with a slight depression on snout. Ventral outline slightly curved from tip of snout to the middle of caudal peduncle. Barbel, keel and tubercles absent (Ref. 86526).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

The type locality is in a coastal heath forest where the habitat consists mainly of Melaleuca (Myrtaceae) stands on sandy and peaty substrate; waters are tannin stained, slow flowing, and acidic (pH 4.5, measurement done in February 2009) (Ref. 65950).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.6250   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00933 (0.00429 - 0.02028), b=3.03 (2.85 - 3.21), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months ().
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
