Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Distinguishable from other Japanese striated spined loaches by the following characteristics: body size large, mature size about 60-70 mm SL in males, 70-90 mm SL in females; lamina circularis at the base of the pectoral fin of adult male simple roundish plate, the upper segments of the first branched soft ray broad and strong; PMN commonly 14; caudal peduncle relatively deep; line L1 organized in longitudinal line from snout tip to dorsal-fin base, and formed by some oval- or saddle-shaped blotches on postdorsal body; line L2 lacking commonly; line L3 formed by sharp longitudinal line, reaching beyond dorsal fin ; line L4 lacking or formed by weak dotted line; line L5 well developed with broad stripe; caudal and dorsal fins margined by a broad black band; upper and lower spot at caudal base connected into dumbell-shape; egg yolk diameter approximately 1.1 mm; karyotype tetraploid (2n = 98) (Ref. 92393).

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=0.00525 (0.00231 - 0.01193), b=3.07 (2.89 - 3.25), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-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 to moderate vulnerability (26 of 100) .
