Etymology: staecki: Named for Wolfgang Staeck (Berlin, Germany), former president of the Deutsche Cichliden-Gesellschaft and collector of the type specimens, to acknowledge his commitment to South American freshwater fishes and his contributions to the taxonomy of the fish families Rivulidae and Cichlidae.

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 8-9; Anal soft rays: 13 - 14; Vertebrae: 31. Belongs to the subgenus Owiyeye and differs from other congeners, except Rivulus altivelis, Rivulus nicoi, Rivulus tecminae and Rivulus uakti, by possessing long pelvic fins (pelvic-fin length up to about 25 % of SL, reaching the middle of anal-fin base in males vs. short pelvic fin, reaching anterior portion of anal-fi n base). Can be separated from other species of the subgenus (except for Rivulus amanapira, Rivulus rectocaudatus and Rivulus tecminae) by truncate caudal fin in males (vs. round, subtruncate, spatula- or lyre-shaped caudal fin). Its 35-38 scales in the longitudinal series separate this species from other species (vs. 41-44 in Rivulus altivelis, 48-49 in Rivulus amanapira and 38-43 in Rivulus rectocaudatus and Rivulus tecminae, 26-29 in Rivulus nicoi and 32-33 in Rivulus uakti) (Ref. 87326).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in a pond with clear, light brownish color and very acidic water (Ref. 87326).

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=0.00479 (0.00199 - 0.01154), b=3.14 (2.93 - 3.35), 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 (10 of 100) .
