Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Siluriformes (Catfish) > Loricariidae (Armored catfishes) > Loricariinae
Etymology: parva: From the Latin 'parvus' , meaning small, in reference to the size of the species.

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 7; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 5. Distinguished from all congeners by its small size with sexual dimorphism expressed around 25 mm SL (vs around 30 mm SL in congeneric species), by the distinct banded color pattern of the caudal fin (vs blotched or indistinct banded pattern in congeneric species), and by its specific barcode sequences (JF292274, JF292275, JF292276). This species does not exhibit unique morphometric tendencies distinguishing it from all other congeneric species. Differs from other congeners except Harttiella intermedia by a caudal peduncle: shorter compared to the species belonging to the longicauda group [mean = 40.36 ± 1.06% of SL vs 43.61 ± 1.79 < mean < 44 .26 ± 1.48% of SL; (HSD, p-values < 0.0002)], and longer compared to the other species of the crassicauda group [mean = 40.36 ± 1.06% of SL vs 36.14 ± 1.66 < mean < 38 .32 ± 1.54% of SL; (HSD, p-values < 0.0281)]. Can be diagnosed from Harttiella intermedia by a smaller body depth at dorsal-fin origin [mean = 10.34 ± 0.83% of SL vs 12.69 ± 0.54; (HSD, p-value = 0.0041)] (Ref. 90209).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5078   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00355 (0.00156 - 0.00807), b=3.14 (2.95 - 3.33), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.8   ±0.3 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) .
