Etymology: Leporinus: Latin, lepus, leporis = rabbit (Ref. 45335);  britskii: In honor of Heraldo Antonio Britski, of the Museu de Zoologia of the Universidade de São Paulo, for his valuable contribution to our knowledge of Neotropical fishes, and especially for his important role in our understanding of Leporinus taxonomy (e.g., Britski, 1976; Britski & Garavello, 1978; Britski & Birindelli, 2008).

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Can be diagnosed from other congeners, except Leporinus amblyrhynchus, L. geminis, L. taeniatus, L. taeniofasciatus, L. unitaeniatus, L. vanzoi, by its dark longitudinal midlateral stripe and dark transversal bars on dorsum. Leporinus britskii differs from Leporinus amblyrhynchus by having four teeth on dentary (vs. three); from L. taeniatus by having 12 circumpeduncular scale series (vs. 16) and 37 to 39 scales on lateral line (vs. 36 to 37); from L. taeniofasciatus by having 12 circumpeduncular scale series (vs. 16); from L. geminis, L. unitaeniatus and L. vanzoi by having three teeth on premaxilla (vs. four), 37 to 39 scales on lateral line (vs. 40 to 43), four or five scale series above lateral line (vs. six), and 12 circumpeduncular scale series (vs. 16) (Ref. 88850).

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=0.01202 (0.00519 - 0.02783), b=3.00 (2.81 - 3.19), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.2   ±0.1 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 (30 of 100) .
