Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 5 - 8; Dorsal soft rays (total): 11-15; Anal soft rays: 7 - 10. This species belongs to the subgenus Catonotus and Etheostoma flabellare complex and is distinguished from Etheostoma flabellare by the combination of the following characters: seven or few, moderate to widely space, dark, distinct, transverse bars per side, usually 15 or less total; 2 or more wedge-shaped transverse bars in nuptial males and usually extending one to two scales below lateral line; nuptial male body color above and below lateral line yellow, golden yellow or golden tan, sharply contrasting with dark bars; scale pigmentation absent, concealed, or confined to areas above lateral line near dorsum or caudal peduncle region, not forming pattern on body; absence of horizontal dark line along body; lateral line usually 42-50, usually 77-95% pored, pored lateral-line scales usually 33-45; dorsal-fin spines modally 7; modally 40%-60% of belly covered by scales; dorsal saddles modally 7 (Ref. 87049).

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=0.00513 (0.00205 - 0.01282), b=3.14 (2.92 - 3.36), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.5 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (16 of 100) .
