Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Siluriformes (Catfish) > Loricariidae (Armored catfishes) > Loricariinae
Etymology: intermedia: From the Latin intermedius meaning intermediary, in reference to the contradiction between morphometry and genetics.

Max length : 3.5 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 90209)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 7; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 5. Distinguished from other congeners by its stocky body shape reminiscent of the crassicauda group, and by its mitochondrial barcode signature typical for the longicauda group (JF292281, JF292284, JF292285). Differs from Harttiella parva plus representatives of the longicauda group except Harttiella pilosa by having a deeper body at dorsal-fin origin (mean = 12.69 ± 0.54% of SL vs 9.86 ± 0.79 < mean < 10.66 ± 0.87% of SL); and from Harttiella janmoli by having a shallower body at dorsal-fin origin (mean = 12.69 ± 0.54% of SL vs 14.80 ± 1.14% of SL). Can be separated from Harttiella pilosa by having a longer head (mean = 26.18 ± 1.12% of SL vs 23.74 ± 1.35% of SL), and from Harttiella crassicauda by having a longer caudal peduncle (mean = 42.35 ± 1.44% of SL vs 36.14 ± 1.66% of SL) (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) .
