Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 11; Anal soft rays: 7. Distinguished from all congeners by its colour pattern consisting of a blackish midlateral stripe extending from the tip of the gill opening to the middle of the base of the caudal fin, separate from the dark brown dorsum by a pale yellowish brown stripe. In all other named with a black midlateral stripe, the dorsum is olive brown, much paler than the midlateral stripe, and there is no yellow stripe between the dorsum and the black stripe (Ref. 87793).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in hill-stream habitats, usually near or in the riffle zone in fast flowing waters over a rocky bottom (Ref. 87793).

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=0.00933 (0.00422 - 0.02065), b=3.03 (2.85 - 3.21), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.4   ±0.2 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 to moderate vulnerability (25 of 100) .
