Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Siluriformes (Catfish) > Heptapteridae (Three-barbeled catfishes)
Etymology: Nemuroglanis: From the Nemuro peninsula in Japan, Hokkaido + Greek, glanis = a fish that can eat the bait without touching the hook; a cat fish;  furcatus: The species epithet, furcatus, refers to the deeply-forked caudal fin (Ref. 86655).

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Nemuroglanis furcatus is distinguished from all congeners by the possession of a long lateral line, reaching middle portion of the adipose-fin base (vs. lateral line extending slightly beyond dorsal-fin base origin); narrow posterior cranial fontanel in adult specimens, 16 to 27% of its length (vs. greater than 40% of its length); and pointed contour of the anterior border of the pectoral bridge (vs. rounded contour). The new species differs further from N. lanceolatus and N. pauciradiatus by possessing a forked caudal fin (vs. lanceolate); the ventral caudalfin lobe with six branched rays (vs. three or four rays); the dorsal caudal plate supporting eight rays (vs. six rays); and seven pairs of pleural ribs (vs. five or six). In addition, it is distinguished from N. mariai by having fewer anal fin rays (12–14, mode = 13, vs. 13–15) and vertebrae (41 vs. 42–44); and by possessing more branched pectoral-fin rays (seven, rarely six vs. six, rarely seven) (Ref. 86655).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5312   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00794 (0.00329 - 0.01915), b=3.01 (2.80 - 3.22), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±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) .
