Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

A species characterized by emarginate or truncate caudal fin, small scales (61-74) and presence of dermosphenotic bone combined with absence of other infraorbital ossicles (Ref. 91764). It is similar to Lepidiolamprologus elongatus, L. kendalli and L. mimicus in color pattern composed of three horizontal rows of dark blotches on each side of body; distinguished from all of these species by presence of a broad dark stripe on cheek (Ref. 91764).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in transition zone between rocks and sand at 15 m depth; habitat consists of sparsely scattered stones of 0.2-2 m in size on white sand bottom; hunts prey on the open sand floor; feeds mainly on cichlid fish juveniles (Ref. 91764).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5005   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  4.0   ±0.7 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 vulnerability (19 of 100) .
